Welcome to our series #BeyondTheBooks, where we’ll get to ask a staff member, or possibly alums/partners, fun questions. So often we focus on the work and mission behind what we do, which is great, but we believe that relationship/community building never ends. The questions have and will be created by the suggestions you leave us on our Facebook and Twitter accounts, along with some of our own. Our students and the education sphere have so many different ideas and backgrounds, we hope you enjoy learning about the different characters here at BTP.
