“Help Kids Dream Big,” Says Teach For America’s Annis Stubbs

A “prerequisite of being a kid” is dreaming big, says Annis Stubbs, executive director of Teach For America – Detroit. Our challenge is providing students with an education system capable of supporting their big dreams—a system that distributes resources equally, educates the child as a whole, and empowers students to execute on their ideas. At the Techonomy Detroit conference, Stubbs talked about her vision of a reinvigorated education system. “Everything starts with an idea,” she said. “We need to help figure out how to ensure that our kids feel good about expressing their ideas and they feel confident enough to have these big ideas.”
