HMH Teacher Ambassador, Renae Kuhn

The work that teachers do is what motivates us at HMH. That’s why we are excited to introduce these exceptional teachers who make up our HMH Advocacy Program. Both HMH Ambassadors and Contributors act as education leaders in their own community and Teacher’s Corner.

Teachers across the country and of all grade levels make up our program. They are available to help other educators navigate HMH programs by interacting through the Ed platform and on the HMH Teacher’s Corner Facebook Group. We encourage you to reach out and say hello!

Meet the HMH Ambassadors
