Dr. Evan Glazer, Principal of Alexandria’s Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, will attend President Trump’s address to a Joint Session of Congress as Rep. Don Beyer’s (D-VA) special guest.

“Dr. Glazer, Thomas Jefferson High School, and its thousands of students and alumni represent the best of our public education system,” said Rep. Beyer. “He knows that success requires a committed investment to educating a multi-cultural student body to build the technologies of tomorrow. We need more educators like him fostering an inclusive, diverse, and successful atmosphere for our schools and children.”

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology is one of the most diverse and successful high schools in Northern Virginia. In 2014 Newsweek ranked it the “number one high school in America,” and it consistently ranks among the best high schools in the country.  Minority students make up three quarters of those enrolled through the school’s extremely competitive admissions process, and an estimated 15-20 percent of the student body comes from immigrant families.

Dr. Glazer will leave Thomas Jefferson after this school year, having led the school since 2006. He earned his B.S. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Mathematics from the University of Illinois, and a Ph.D. in Instructional Technology at the University of Georgia. He taught courses on instructional design, research methods and computer use at the university level and directed the Roanoke Valley Governor’s School for Science and Technology before joining Thomas Jefferson.
