Meet Kathy Edwards. Kathy, an Assistant Professor at Ashland Community College, Ashland, KY, took part in our 2002 Congress in the Classroom®, a workshop offered by The Dirksen Center. This is what she had to say about her experience: "I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to you and all of your staff for an enriching experience last week. The speakers were educational, the dialogue among us teachers was inspirational and spirited. I came home with new information and an increased appreciation of technology, and all the vast resources you and the others supplied -- and will begin using many of the resources and ideas in my "smart classroom" in American Government. It was an honor to be a part of Congress in the Classroom® -- academically, professionally, and personally."
