About George Couros:
My name is George Couros, and I am currently an Innovative Teaching, Learning, and Leadership Consultant and speaker and the author of “The Innovator’s Mindset” and “Innovate Inside the Box” and co-owner of IMPress Books. I have worked at all school levels, from K-12 as a teacher, technology facilitator, and school and district administrator, and I am currently an Adjunct Instructor with the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. I believe that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders will help to ensure that we meet the best needs of all children.
I am lucky to be the father of two wonderful children, Kallea and Georgia, and I am driven to ensure that they and every student have an amazing experience in their K-12 schooling. I am not focused solely on preparing students for the “real world” but want them to make the real world better.

New OFFICIAL Sponsor of the Aspire to Lead Podcast!
As a passionate coffee drinker, I am always looking for the best cup of premium coffee. Once Leslie and I tasted Papa Rob’s Coffee, we instantly fell in love with the flavor of the Espresso Special Blend. Papa Rob’s Coffee is the only coffee we drink and I’m proud to have them as the exclusive sponsor of the podcast!
Papa Rob’s Roasting Company was started to pass on the love for premium coffee that is as fresh as it is delicious! Rob sources only the finest green coffee beans from around the world and then roasts them to perfection upon order in small batches, so that they will always be at their peak flavor and freshness. One taste and you will experience the difference!
