Since 1994, KIPP has grown from two teachers in a single Houston classroom to more than 3,800 teachers serving 58,000 students in 162 schools across the country. Join us in our chat with Mara Bond ( KIPP Iluminar in LA), Wheda Carletos (KIPP Vision Primary in Atlanta), Jenna Molinski (KIPP Memphis) and other KIPP school leaders around the country about the challenges and rewards of starting and leading a school. What does it take to go from teaching a class to running a school, and what do you do when you’re given the freedom to build that school from the ground up? The Google Hangout will be broadcast live on Tuesday, August 5 at 3 pm PST / 6 pm EST. Please share your questions in the Hangout comments section. All friends and colleagues are welcome!
