Education is complicated. It would be easy if everyone could learn in the same way. But we all know that each and every human being is unique. Because of this, we need education models that afford flexibility so each learner can get the most out of their education. Boldly accepting differences within each learner and taking on the challenge of creating models that serve each type of student will lead to better world for all of us. I firmly believe that education can transform the lives of everyone.

Does learning just happen sitting in a classroom? No. Can learning happen almost anywhere? Yes. It is my mission support the growth of alternative learning models so alternative types of learning can be encouraged and validated. Part of this effort will be facilitating the conversation around innovation in education. While it may be challenge to transform the education system as we know it, we’ll see invaluable returns on our efforts.
