Education as Access to Freedom

January 13, 2016 |

Stefanie Spencer, principal of Sherwood Elementary School in Spring Branch ISD, is an idealist and a doer. She is a passionate educator who believes her work can – and will – change the world.

Spencer’s tenacity and drive made her a natural candidate for the Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program (REEP), a yearlong course that teaches school leaders to apply business theories to the public school setting. Raise Your Hand sponsored Spencer to attend the program in 2015.

In this Q&A, Spencer answers questions about her journey as an educator and the changes she has effected on her campus.

“There are tenets in business and tenets in education but managing people can cross those lines. People want to be treated with respect, they want opportunities to grow, they want their voices heard, they want their concerns addressed.”
