Wisconsin’s top teacher delivers his first “State of Education” address in Madison.
Newly-elected Department of Public Instruction Superintendent Tony Evers has more than 30 years of public education experience, but this was his first “State of Education” address. How did it feel?
“It was great and it was humbling. I mean, standing in the capitol is humbling enough even if you’re just walking through on a regular day, but being with all the people that really make things happen in our schools, and all the friends of education and teachers are here. It was a humbling experience but very rewarding.”
Evers served as Deputy Superintendent of DPI from 2001 to April of 2009, when he was elected to the top job.
