Our Story

As part of the education industry for decades, we have experienced the challenges and frustrations. Often district and educational leaders that truly want change are seen as a problem rather than a solution. In addition, there is always the issue of budget constraints and fears of change and technology implementation. As progressive, experienced innovators we have personally experienced all of the above mentioned issues.

We have always been passionate about education and positive change. This is what led us to become consultants and education influencers. Helping others create the change they want to see within their schools is what we love doing. We have made this our mission within our own schools and schools around the United States. This passion is what sets us apart.

Years of working with consultants that come in with cookie cutter solutions that use buzz words and don’t solve anything was overwhelmingly frustrating to us. Knowing that you are paying tons of money to these people to tell you lots of things that either don’t work, are outdated, or do not align with your school or district’s goals is frustrating and senseless.

After getting fed up with this battle we began to create the changes we wanted to see. Looking internally at our own skills rather than seeking outside consultants. This changed everything for us and our school! We knew we were really on to something. After 10 years of success within our own schools and being asked to help others, we decided it was time to offer these services to the world!
