Results from the recently completed HMH Educator Confidence Report are resonating nationally. On August 18, the USA Today Snapshot featured a key statistic from that report: 52% of educators feel the need for more engagement in the classroom from parents. This significant need that is echoing throughout schools across the country is being seriously addressed by HMH thought leader and Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. CEO, Sylvia Acevedo.
Sylvia’s expertise in this area comes naturally—as a young student whose family came to the U.S. from Mexico, she was fortunate to have engaged parents who closely followed her education needs and school activities and got her involved in the Girl Scouts. She attributes her own successes in life—as a NASA scientist, business executive, and now CEO of the Girl Scouts—to that involvement.
