A Can't Miss Parent Presentation With Angela Maiers - September 16, 2010


Burlington High is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting nationally known education consultant Angela Maiers. Angela will speak to parents in the Burlington High School Auditorium from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 16, 2010.  Angela is regarded an expert on 21st Century education, learning, and literacy and she is excited to offer our community her enlightening perspective on how the world inside schools needs to change in order to better prepare our students for the world outside of our schools.


More importantly, Angela brings the perspective of a mom with two school-aged children.  This is an important opportunity for all parents of students in Burlington to get involved in the conversation concerning where we need to go as both a high school and a school district in order to provide our students the most relevant education possible.

  1. Can you bullet point what makes her an expert on this? What are her credentials aside from a self-published book and being a parent? What is her educational background?

  3. Thanks for the question on Angela's credentials. Please click on her name in the post. It leads to a page which I think will answer your question. I saw Angela at a conference in Iowa last spring. She was also a featured presenter at the Building Learning Communities Conference in Boston this summer.

    If you have any specific questions feel free to post them here or call me at 339 234-1673. Hope you can attend!
