Angela Maiers | Bammy Award Nominee

 

"Angela is not your ordinary education blogger/commentator; she is more like an evangelist for all that is good in kids and education. Her love and belief in them shines through in all of her work and is the force behind her movement, Choose2Matter. She tells kids and educators "You matter," and she inspires them to believe it. Angela asks students to change the world -- and they do!"

Award-winning author and pioneer of digital literacy and education Angela Maiers has been nominated for a Bammy Award! Each year, The Bammy Awards honor the educators that are on the front lines of innovation in education and aim to “recognize the collaborative nature of education, to encourage respect in and across various domains, to raise the profile and voices of the many undervalued and unrecognized people who are making a difference in the field and to elevate educators, education and the value of life-long learning in the public eye.” 

The awards truly do go across the domains to include teachers, principals, school nurses, parents, students and even custodians.  

It’s no surprise that Angela is a nominee after all of the important work she has accomplished through her multiple books on education, educational evangelism through social media and initiatives such as Choose 2 Matter. Choose 2 Matter was Angela’s response to the powerful reaction she received to her TEDx talk “You Matter”, which was viewed over 120,000 times. Through this call-to-action movement, she provides individuals resources to tackle the problematic issues they’re passionate about. We’re excited to see her hard work and dedication furthered and all of the lives she will continue to change. Congratulations again, Angela, from all of us at Premiere!
