Introduction
Megan Marcus believes that any educator in the U.S. can and must become a consistent, caring and responsive “secure attachment figure.” The emerging field of social neuroscience makes an increasingly compelling case for the impact of relationships on our brains and development. Through FuelEd, Megan is showing how educators, school leaders, teacher training colleges, and counselors can transform educator preparation, performance and retention as well as student achievement and development both cost-effectively and at scale through the power of relationships.
