Having worked as a teacher, administrator, college professor, and consultant, I have learned from all of the people with whom I have worked. Each opportunity has offered a fantastic reward that the others did not. I still enjoy the creation of new products based on the needs of the districts with whom we work; every district is unique, and no two schools have ever done reform in quite the same way!
I am passionate about the work of EdFocus because we work in a “hands-on” fashion, being in the schools with teachers and administrators, seeing what they encounter every day. I love seeing educators have an “AH-HA moment,” when they do something they did not know they could—seeing them empowered is great motivation for the work that we do.
The lasting friendships that have been formed in over 40 years in the business are among the things I value the most.
