Why Educational Publishing?
Shelley believes that education is a democratizing force in society, and she is an advocate for underrepresented voices. She also believes in the abilities of all students to excel when invited into the right space with the right materials and the right teacher. For Shelley, educational publishing was a natural step from classroom teaching, giving her the ability to impact learners beyond a single campus.
