Releasing the Genius with Charles Ledger
Charles Ledger looked on with pride as he watched yet another graduating class of Spirit of Math (SoM) students move on to the next chapter of their academic careers at a graduation ceremony for Greater Toronto Area students on June 3. 
Charles, who developed the initial grades 7 to 9 Spirit of Math curriculum while teaching at a suburban junior high school in Toronto, has seen many great minds take the stage at SoM graduation ceremonies. 
From Theoretical Physicists to former Council of Economics Advisors in the Executive Office of the President of the United States, Charles has seen a wide range of students Release the Genius first-hand. But what does it mean to Release the Genius? Here's what the SoM co-founder had to say: 
"It means that people are able to do things they don’t realize they can do," Charles said of SoM's mission statement. "To Release the Genius means that you give them (students) the opportunity, the background and the discipline so that their true genius ability can be seen."
