Jennie Magiera is in her second decade as an educator, and yet her entire world was changed when she became a mother. Having to raise her own inquisitive mind raises new questions and deepens her urgency to transform schools and systems. Just as Jennie’s young daughter was entering school for the first time, the COVID-19 global pandemic changed the landscape of education. Hear about Jennie's experiences transforming schools, approaching online learning, and her hopes for the future through this talk written in the form of a letter to her little girl.
