Many educators are not working in administrative positions anymore. Since the positions are difficult and riddled with issues, people find alternative career paths instead of working within a sector that matters. What makes us care is our ability to remember a teacher or principal who encouraged us along.
Instead of continuing to lose people who don’t have the support needed, districts choose us to come in and alleviate these concerns. We understand that the usual business model doesn’t work when dealing with children. What sets us apart is our ability to show interest in public schools and invest in their development.
Getting this right is our only option. If we do not, there is never going to be the power base we need to provide the best education possible.
Our Guiding Principle
"How many effective schools would you have to see to be persuaded of the educability of poor children? If your answer is more than one, then I submit that you have reasons of your own for preferring to believe that pupil performance derives from family background instead of school response to family background. We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do that. Whether or not we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we haven't so far.” ~Ronald Edmonds
The above statement is what drives us to continue with what we do. For us, it is not about the money, but about giving back to the mentors and coaches throughout our educational careers. Without these individuals, we could not be successful. Helping individuals who are just starting out or aspiring to educate is our way of paying it forward and making a difference.
