Educate the Heart with Jennifer Lee Quattrucci

By Jennifer Lee Quattrucci
This podcast is for teachers and parents who believe children must be loved first, and no academic subject, content matter, or trend can replace the human connection all children need to thrive. It’s about bringing authentic learning to students and encouraging creativity, collaboration and the use of critical thinking skills throughout the school day and beyond. It is an introduction to and based on my forthcoming book: Educate the Heart: Screen-Free Activities for Grades PreK-6 to Inspire Authentic Learning.
Please join me and be part of the conversation! Together we can be so much better!
