All of my schooling experience has never given me the opportunity to view things from a business model or perspective. REEP really has redesigned the way I think about education and how we do schooling.

It’s like, when you go away and you work on yourself and you have this really major experience. How do you make sure you hold on to that feeling, so that you can keep reminding yourself of the purpose and the great structure you learned, so you can benefit thousands of kids from what you worked on for yourself?

I have recommended REEP to several principals. It makes you rethink strategies. It’s all about being opened up to other ways of doing things, because you can get in a rut. It’s invigorating and gives you a chance to go out and try some new things.
