Note from the President: “My passion is supporting the development of children and the adults who care for them. In addition to founding and running this company, I’ve been teaching adults and children for over 20 years both in public/private Montessori schools and In the Neuroscience of Learning course offered at Harvard University. I am looking for someone who shares a similar drive to be of benefit to humanity and who can help the company realize its full potential.”
