The Hope Matrix


This week’s special guest on the Hope Matrix is Taylor Steed. Taylor is the author of the Hopeful Minds Overview and Hopeful Minds Deep Dive Educator Guides, as well as many of the Hopeful Minds and iFred resources for parents, educators, and children.

In this week’s episode, Taylor and Kathryn discuss the importance of hope in the classroom, and how Hopeful Minds is striving to make hope “cool” for kids. They reflect on their favorite aspects of the new curriculums, and reveal how current events have inspired them to make the curriculums classroom or remote-learning adaptive.
