How to Unleash Genius in Kids and Teachers #YouMatter

Angela Maiers on episode 41 of the 10-Minute Teacher #MondayMotivation

From the Cool Cat Teacher Blog by Vicki Davis

Follow @coolcatteacher on Twitter

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.
