Anna Gu - Anna is a second-year Master of Public Affairs candidate at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. After completing a BA in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity at Stanford University, she supported research and advocacy for blended and personalized learning at the Christensen Institute. She then taught in a Montessori preschool before returning to her home state to oversee a $7 million statewide grant for public-private prekindergarten partnerships at the Texas Education Agency.
