Noodle releases report on the 67 Most Influential Educators who are changing the way we learn in 2015
LANSING, MI — At one point in your life — if you are lucky — an inspiring leader will transform the way you think. Angelina Zeller, president and chief executive officer of Lansing-based Engaged Education, was recently selected by Noodle, a leading education site that connects students with schools, programs, resources and experts, as one of the 67 Most Influential Educators in 2015.
Zeller oversees Engaged Education, a full service Educational Service Provider (ESP), and she is also the founder of LifeTech and Relevant Academies. She has built successful schools from the ground up, managing human and capital resources as well as creating effective blended-learning environments.
“Zeller is committed to cutting through red tape to make a difference in students’ lives,” said Matthew D. Anderson, partner at Engaged Education. “With a mandate to help people develop as human beings, Engaged Education works to support students in a variety of ways — from developing project-based learning curricula to training teachers in how to obtain funding.”
Noodle’s team of experts extensively investigated the movers and shakers of education and selected 67 educators as the ones to watch in 2015.
“This list contains the best of the best within education,” said Suzanne Podhurst, Noodle Editor-in-Chief. “We started with thousands of the greatest education minds and spent months culling this list to the 67 individuals who are transforming the way we learn.”
The list is comprised of teachers as well as bloggers, administrators, policymakers, researchers and activists whose innovations reach learners across the globe. Their collective impact spans ed tech, education analysis, higher education and K–12 education (charter, public and private schools). While their contributions vary, all have made a significant impact on our world.
