So far I’ve spent my career in education publishing. From Technical Support to a director-level product management role, I understand the business of education curriculum and assessment as well as anyone – and better than most. I’m in love with the potential I see, but not so in love with the mire of politics and institutional bureaucracy that prevents teachers from teaching as effectively as they can, with the tools that would help them the most. Profitability and doing the right thing should go hand-in-hand.
Nowadays my heart and I are spending some time serving others through volunteer work. I’m also writing a book, which is harder than I anticipated. Once I’ve got some street cred, my heart, my MBA, and I will jump back in the career ring and use our powers for good. Seriously. It can happen.
