Jeff not only has a vision for 21st century schools, but he understands the realities of the classroom. I’ve seen his passion and ingenuity first-hand, when he was introducing differentiated and collaborative learning in his own classes, and while we implemented a school-wide blended learning initiative.

His experience in the business world is evident in his ability to develop innovative programs and to drive collaboration among teachers.
