Beth Oswald

Evansville teacher – and WEAC Region 6 member – Beth Oswald has been selected by national nonprofit organization Hope Street Group as one of only 15 educators nationwide to join its first Teacher Advisory Council (TAC) through the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years.

“On the TAC, I will be working with educators from across the country, collaborating with members boasting a variety of experiences and expertise, to provide feedback on HSG’s programs, operations and connectivity among its active and ‘alumni’ Teacher Fellows,” said Oswald a 7th grade world history teacher.

“This honor is a reflection of the outstanding education community in Evansville, Wisconsin, as well as the support provided through my continued membership in WEAC and the NEA,” she said.

Oswald served as a Hope Street Group National Teacher Fellow in 2014-2015, leading peer engagement including data collection, decision-maker engagement, and strategic communications like Twitter chats, op-eds and blogs. She said her motivation to apply for this position stems from her love of teaching and her belief that teacher-leadership roles, like HSG’s Teacher Advisory Council, are vital in sustaining and advancing the profession.
