Episode 48: Meaningful Learning with Andi McNair

Andi McNair, a teacher at Bosqueville Elementary, discusses genius hour, helping students find their passions, and making education meaningful. McNair teaches Gifted and Talented students at a small rural school in Texas, the same small district that she and her husband attended in high school.  For 10 years she taught 4th & 5th grade math before moving into gifted education.  As a parent of gifted children, Andi realizes the importance of advocating for gifted education. Andi has spoken at the Texas Association for Gifted and Talented Conference for the last few years and has also presented at the Texas Association of School Boards.
