As a young teacher, I had an epiphany: people need to matter. They need to be noticed, valued, and honored. Ever since, the “You Matter” message has been changing hearts, minds, and lives.

This toolkit curates the best of my “You Matter” content. It offers a low-cost, high-energy professional development day or retreat, and can be used every day, all year long.



Purchase “Mattering IS the Agenda – A Toolkit for Transformation” below. It includes:

  • Videos of three You Matter-themed keynote presentations by Angela Maiers.
  • A collection of Angela’s best writing.
