Angela Farthing

Director,
  NCAE Center for Instructional  
  Advocacy & Issue Organizing

What is the best career decision that you have made?  

I made two career decisions that were best for me at different times in my life.  The first was becoming a high school teacher where I know I made a difference in the lives of students. The second was joining the staff of NCAE to conduct professional development for educators and to work on educational policy issues as an advocate for educators.

If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently?

Nothing.  Impacting public education is my calling.

How have women helped further your career?

First my grandmothers as well as my mother provided support to believe I could be anything I wanted, to trust my faith and rely on family as a strong foundation for keeping the compass on my true north.  Several teachers in my life made an impact and I am grateful for their guidance and discipline.  Strong women both educators and NCAE staff influenced me as I have grown in my role at NCAE.  I have been blessed with strong friends and co-workers to help me continue to fight the fight for public education.
