“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”Malala Yousafzai

With the first day of school just a few days away here in Alabama, our minds have turned toward inspiring teachers, optimistic students, and to the opportunities provided by a quality education. This week we decided to explore some of the most forward thinking teachers and professors across the country (and across the decades) and to share a few women from our #womenwhoinspire series whose educations were at the core of their influential and life-changing work.
