KRISTEN NAN is a 3rd Grade teacher who serves near Pittsburgh, PA. She's a blogger, presenter, and award winning educator for innovative practices. Kristen describes herself as a believer in goodness, idea generator, risk taker, and disruptor in education!
In our conversation, Kristen discusses the challenge of always having a tsunami of creative ideas: the people around us won’t always share our enthusiasm! She defines GRIT (goal setting, responsibility, imagining excellence, and a tough mindset) and explains why it’s so critical for educators to model grit for our learners. She also talks about her upcoming book, shares some of her personal passions and productivity habits, and lists a few of the education voices and resources that inspire her practice today.
