DR. JACIE MASLYK is an educator, speaker, and author at ISTE, SolutionTree, and She’s an Assistant Superintendent for the Hopewell Area School District in Aliquippa, PA, with a passion for #STEM education, makerspaces, literacy, leadership, and creativity in education.

Dr. Jacie Maslyk is the author of several books, including ...

  • Remaking Literacy: Innovative Instructional Strategies for Maker Learning, Grades K-5 (Classroom Maker Projects for Elementary Literacy Education).
  • Unlock Creativity: Opening a World of Imagination With Your Students

She is also the co-author of Makers in Schools: Entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution

In our conversation, Dr. Jacie recalls being stonewalled by a veteran teacher during her earliest days in administration. She talks about the heart and mission of Unlock Creativity: Opening a World of Imagination With Your Students, and urges educators to lead the charge by modeling learning and creativity in front of our learners. Jacie also shares her personal passions, a productivity hack, and some of the voices and resources that are shaping her thinking and inspiring her practice today.
