Last December, the Wyoming Department of Education selected a 15-person Teacher Cabinet made up of instructors throughout the state, in an effort to garner input on department initiatives. Members of the cabinet committed to an 18-month term that began in January. During their term, cabinet members will participate in monthly teleconference meetings with Wyoming Department of Education Director Richard Crandall and leadership from the department.

Director Crandall says that it just made sense to get input from teachers in the state.

The cabinet members represent a cross section of geographical locations, as well as grade and subject levels. Crandall said that the teachers represent 11 different counties across the state and were selected from 146 applicants statewide. The lone representative from Sheridan County is Laurie Graves, who teaches at Big Horn Elementary School.
