Who We Are

Student Leaders

Elected by their peers or appointed by PDK International Chief Executive Officer Joshua P. Starr, the Educators Rising National Student Cabinet members are external ambassadors and internal thought leaders. They engage in critical education conversations at the national level to provide a student perspective; serve as Educators Rising representatives at local, state, and national functions; and ensure that Educators Rising students have a voice in program development. The National Student Cabinet exemplifies the finest qualities of our national network and of the future of the teaching profession.
