How to Unleash Genius in Kids and Teachers #YouMatter

My husband told me Friday night, “Did you really listen to what Angela Maiers said on that podcast?” I was tired beyond belief – not taking very good care of myself and having one of those bouts of self-deprecation that some of us teachers have. So, this show is for me and one I'll listen to for years to come. I know there's someone else out there who needs to hear this talk about mattering, worthiness, and good health. Thanks, Angela Maiers @angelamaiers for sharing your heart.

Check out my 2022 Edutopia Article about how Genius Hour is helping students regain meaning after the pandemic. Subscribe to my newsletter to stay tuned on Genius Hour and other best practices. In the meantime, this is an excellent introduction to Genius Hour and its origins. The principles remain the same.
