born 1971

By 5th grade, Reagan Flowers still didn't know her multiplication tables. With supportive teachers on her side, Reagan finished 6th grade as an honors student, going on to earn multiple graduate degrees and become a pioneering force in STEM education.

Reagan draws on her childhood and teaching experiences to keep enhancing C-STEM ~ the organization she founded to develop 21st-century curricula that integrate communication + leadership skills with tech training. A self-described student who "beat the odds," she is living proof of the transformative power of education.
