DeVos's nomination was just approved by a Senate committee, and her next step will be to clear a full senate vote.

Prior to this nomination, DeVos has been best known for pushing to expand private school vouchers and charter schools in Michigan.

DeVos has come under fire for ducking several questions around education. Like, how she'd address issues of campus rape, how to protect the rights of students with disabilities, and whether or not she felt guns had a place in schools, among other things.

So if you're a teacher, the question is: what do you want to tell Betsy DeVos?

You can talk about what matters to you, why you're excited for her nomination, or what concerns you have around her potential position.

Tell us what grade you teach, and what you want DeVos to know for a chance to be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
