Ellen Dempsey, the founder and national executive director of National Teachers Network in New York, was a passionate believer in teachers and coined the Teachers Network phrase "by teachers, for teachers." She was a tireless advocate for bringing the teacher's voice to the educational policy table, believing in the words of Dag Hammarskjold that "the road to holiness necessarily passes through the world of action." She formed the Teachers Network Policy Institute to provide that voice, always combining idealism, vision, and action to make good things happen for teachers. It is fitting that her vision and actions live on through this memorial grant program.
