Irreverent or Unabashedly Authentic?
Matt is a district administrator, and former math teacher, in a learner-centered proficiency-based system. He is a zealot for learner-centered, proficiency-based education systems, but has no tolerance for educators looking out for themselves in lieu of the learners. He loves Chelsea FC a little too much, and 90's alternative rock way too much. His favorite saying is "to be uncertain is uncomfortable, but to be certain is ridiculous." Sort of sums up personalized learning. He tweets at @eatsleepstats. Contact Matt at PLearnMC@gmail.com
Courtney is a k-12 instructional coach. She is enjoying her journey in education, and figures that she can fall back on being a rock star if it doesn't pan out. Before working with teachers Courtney worked with middle schoolers in a public school, and animals of all ages, including people, at a nature sanctuary. She believes that personalized, proficiency-based learning is the elegant solution, and that all arguments otherwise are riddled with fallacies. Courtney loves to lacto-ferment vegetables from her yard or local farmers market, and her favorite asana is rajakapotasana. Courtney teaches yoga to adults and children in Midcoast Maine.
