OMG I am going to DC

What a Leap Day! On February 29, 2012 I found out I was chosen to represent the State of Missouri in the Parenting Magazine’s Mom Congress on Education and Learning Conference in Washington, DC this spring. I was beyond excited and giddy and thrilled to be selected. Only 51 moms from across the country are selected to attend this conference. If you have any ideas about what changes or suggestions we need within our education system, please feel free to share them with me.

Here is a little blurb about it. I hope to get the official press release soon:

“Over the three days, the Mom Congress delegates will hear from and connect with the nation’s leading education experts and moms from across the country who are putting in the same long hours to improve our schools and ensure a great future for our kids. Last year’s speakers included Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, StudentsFirst Founder and CEO Michelle Rhee, Chef Jamie Oliver, National PTA President Betsy Landers, and other organization heads and influential members of the education community.”

I’ll keep you posted as the process continues.

Thanks! Angela

About Today, Tomorrow & Mom Forever

I am the proud mom of two beautiful, empathetic and highly intelligent children. On a daily basis, they rock my world. My philosophy, as a parent, I have one opportunity to do right by my children. My passion, to provide them with a loving and nurturing environment where compassion, passion and education are the building blocks to life. As parents, we are our children's advocates, therefore, united, we are one voice for our children. I write from the heart coupled with facts and research. Life is short, too short to get caught up in drama. To quote my hero, Eleanor Roosevelt, super mom and advocate: “Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.”
