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."
