About this Speaker
My mission is to transform the k-12 education experience.
I taught in public, private and charter schools for 5 years helping 89% of my students to earn commended on the Texas state standardized test and helping more than 75% of my students earn 4s and 5s on AP (Advanced Placement) Tests. I won teaching and coaching awards and still found myself unable to help kids the way they should be. I knew there had to be another way.
Here is what I am doing about it:
Today, I work tirelessly to disrupt and innovate school as a team leader at Alpha, an innovative, independent school that uses adaptive learning software in place of direct instruction.
Every student at Alpha performs in the top 10% of students their age on the MAP assessment. 99% of our students report that they love coming to school. Every student learns life skills, technical skills and transferable skills. We are changing the way kids do school.
I co-founded Guide, a social e-learning app that teaches students life skills through micro-video content to provide access to innovative education options!
Guide makes learning blended, on demand and relevant! We are changing the way students use education.
