LoGerfo & Vincent: Hot Education Power Couple

They're hot.  They're both in education.  And they're a couple.  They're Vincent Pickett (aide to Ray Simon) and Laura LoGerfo (Assoc. Research Scientist at IES). They're a hot education power couple.

Logerfo_and_pickett3I met them at the Spencer reception last week through my  talent wrangler colleague Greg Toppo from USA Today.  I didn't have a chance to ask, but I'm guessing they text each other about new waivers and confidence intervals during the day, and catch up on state audit results and the latest NAS report over dinner.  Or maybe not. 

While we're on the topic of power couples, I also hear that NPR hotshot Steve Drummond is married to Lori Meyer, a NASBE project director.  That counts.

Previous mentions have included Heather Podesta and hubby Tony, Nina Rees and husband Matt, Sara Mead and Matt Yglesias, Wendy Kopp and Richard Barth (KIPP), and several others.  But I'm always looking for more.  Any education power couples that should be included?

What about Patrick and Jennifer Riccards? He is the former senior advisor to the National Reading Panel and project director for the U.S. Department of Education's Partnership for Reading. Now is the author of the Eduflack blog. She is a policy analyst at the U.S. Department of Education, heading up their Doing What Works website.

In DC, there's Heather Peske at Ed Trust and Charlie Toulmin at NGA. In Chicago, there's Gretchen Crosby-Sims at the Joyce Foundation and Brian Sims at the Academy for Urban School Leadership. Then, of course, there's my wife, Sara Goldrick-Rab, a professor of education policy studies and sociology at UW-Madison. She' s the better (hot) half of us.
