How do you thrive as a true creative, in a system built for process? If you're 2086xxoo (or "20" for short), you dive in with both feet and "problem-solve your way through" the constraints.

Oh, and create curricular innovation along the way.

This week I'm honored to talk with the most innovative educator I have ever seen in action. 20 is the kind of teacher they make movies about, the kind of educator whose ability to connect with students and call up the best in them seems almost magical. Throughout a career that has spanned nearly every grade level, school type, and demographic environment, 20 has consistently fed the fire of creative work, recently launching the language arts platform for teachers and students, Liberation Education.

Think of Liberation Ed like an educational Netflix, with a library of original language arts hip hop songs and videos, created in collaboration with students, with full curriculum currently in the works. On this episode, 20 and I talk about harnessing the power of "kid energy" to create curriculum that students WANT to connect with, and how to thrive as true creatives in an education system stacked against the mold-breakers.
