Sharon Rubinstein, a participant of the 2012 class of Licensed Consultants, attended the 7th Annual Champions of Innovation and Education Luncheon hosted by Teaching Matters. Teaching Matters is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing teacher effectiveness. The luncheon was attended by New York City Richard Buery, who served on a panel with other New York education leaders to discuss poverty’s impact on education.

She has engaged in a wide variety of successful campaigns concerning education, juvenile justice, child welfare, health reform, and family economic security issues.
