Little Canada, MN — Rose Chu, Ph.D., is on a mission to transform the public narrative about the teaching profession. She believes that teachers uncover the brilliance of students and are a pillar of democracy. Yet she observes that too few people are entering the profession and too many are not staying. Building on her innovative work with TeachMN20/20 and ImprintU, she intends to ignite a social movement that encourages talented people to become teachers, especially those from communities of color and American Indian communities. To lead this bold and visionary effort, she will learn more about strategies for transformative social change and about the public view of teachers in different communities nationally and societies globally. She will also develop leadership skills to scale and sustain her influence, with a commitment to personal healing and restoration.
