Angela Maiers, USA, K-12, Literacy, 21st Century Education

I am proud of my 20-year career in education, especially the years I spent as a classroom teacher. I am currently working as an independent consultant dedicated and committed to helping DOE’s, schools, districts and teachers reach their goals in literacy and literacy education.

For the past six years, I have created, developed, and organized multiple literacy institutes reaching thousands of educators across the United States. These summer institutes provide an innovative and unique venue for educators, administrators, and curriculum developers. Every student reaches their highest literacy and learning potential when they are lead by such knowledgeable and passionate leaders.

I received my bachelor’s degree from University of Iowa and did my graduate and post graduate work at Drake University. I currently live in Clive, Iowa with my husband and two children, Ryan and Abigail and our dog, Buttons.

Teachers need to be great learners to lead great learners. I believe that learning is a lifelong journey, an ongoing exploration and way of life. I challenge myself and others to always be striving to find and share big ideas in every million dollar conversation.
