"Here, when we want the elephant to grow, we feed the elephant. We don't weigh the elephant."

Tim--how would you like to be part of "Feeding the Elephant?"

In America, K12 education is all about measurement. Standardized testing measures the success of kids, of teachers, and the classroom. And despite the scoring, we are failing.

My team is working to turn this educational model on its head by building an educational experience that feeds children with information and experiences that will get them excited about learning. Our goal is not to "weigh" or measure them using tests that don't really get to the heart of what they know or can do. Our goal is engage them where they are--and leverage their natural gifts and abilities to build confidence, a desire to learn and grow and a passion for reaching beyond limitations.

And we are doing that through an educational model that is built on creativity, fun, humor, and the wise application of knowledge.

Recently I have been watching "Last Man Standing" reruns and have a new inspiration for our next stage of development. I'd like to leverage the vlogs as well as short snippets from the episodes to draw kids in to learning.

Interested? Please contact me at the email address assigned to this account and let's talk!
