In this panel, several panelists from a wide variety of backgrounds will discuss what they consider to be education, and what public education would look like in a perfect world. They will each present a very brief (5-10 minute) demo lesson about a skill they’ve mastered. Panelists will include: - Robert Lee, a corporate veteran who now works as a consultant for non-for-profit organizations, and an expert bee keeper. Mr. Lee is interested in improving education by addressing questions such as why American students lag behind Asian students in math and science. - Chheng Lim, a University of Chicago graduate who started and sold her first real estate investment company while in college, and joined a Beverly Hills based private equity real estate company after college. Ms. Lim was also assistant producer of a documentary series that aired primetime across China on CCTV. She continues to have interests in real estate, architecture, investments, and media. - Elisa Shoenberger, a University of Chicago graduate who received her MA in Latin American Studies from the University of Wisconsin with a specialization in Cuban History. Ms. Shoenberger currently works at the Art Institute of Chicago, and is interested in the role of popular art forms, such as comics, in propaganda. - Ivanhoe Tejeda holds a BA in Architecture from IIT and an M.Ed from UIC.
