In this new report, National Civic League shares stories of extraordinary educators recognized by MetLife Foundation Ambassadors In Education Awards Program and the universal themes their work represented.

Profiles of the award-winning examples of educators (principals and teachers) describe how educators went above and beyond their usual classroom duties to show outstanding leadership in building bridges between their schools and their communities.
