Angela’s Recommendations

  • EdTech Tool: Zoom
  • Book: Linchpin” by Seth Godin
  • Who to Follow on Twitter or Instagram: People outside your network–will talk about why! Anyone who inspires you can push your thinking can offer different perspectives. People who do that for me:
  • YouTube/Podcast/Website/Blog: Again–I suggest in addition to following people in your network–step outside.
  • Daily/Weekly/Monthly Routine: Daily affirmations. Every day teachers need to affirm that THEY MATTER–not just their kids but WE MATTER. Worthiness is a daily practice!
  • Best piece of advice you’ve ever received: Stand for something.
