As climate change makes food harder to grow and less nutritious, food fortification will become even more important. I’m encouraged to see it on the agenda for the World Health Assembly in Geneva this week.
I had the best day in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Over a coal plant tour, a site visit of the future Natrium plant, burgers, ice cream, and coffee, I got excited about the clean energy transition and the promise of next-generation nuclear.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amilcar Fernandez, an 8th grade math teacher at Chula Vista Middle School. He walked me through the innovative work he’s doing to meet the needs of all his students, including building strong relationships, increasing classroom belonging, incorporating student voice, and collecting feedback on his own performance from students themselves. Teachers like Amilcar—and their work to create collaborative, motivating, and engaging learning experiences—are worth celebrating. #teacherappreciationweek
Happy birthday, Jenn! You continue to amaze me with your intelligence, creativity, and compassion. I feel incredibly lucky to be your dad, and I'm so proud of everything you've accomplished. Love you always!
One of the best parts of my work is getting the opportunity to learn. This week, I had a chance to spend time in Southern California and learn from innovators in the education space. Thanks for having me, @chaffeycollege , @officialhightechhigh , and @asugsvsummit .
I am so impressed with Eva Nangalo—it’s hard not to be. She’s spent decades making childbirth safer in Uganda for everyone involved, and she’s become a mentor to countless other midwives in the process.
