Truly one of the highlights of the day was to hear from the nation's only Governor to have been a classroom teacher in the last 20 years, Iowa's Governor Chet Culver!
It was a great day for Team ISEA to meet with state policy makers and share the issues important to our profession and to the students we teach.
