Remembering Maya Angelou


Maya Angelou was an inspiration to us all and we are deeply saddened by her passing. Her words of hope, gratitude and resiliency are deeply touching to educators, and will continue to be for years to come. We were very lucky to witness her inspirational work firsthand in an interview in the September 2013 issue of Educational Leadership magazine, as well as a keynote speaker at the 2013 ASCD Annual Conference and Exhibit Show. To commemorate her words, we pulled together some of her most inspirational quotes and sayings from these engagements to share with you.

You certainly are a rainbow in our clouds, Ms. Angelou.
