My Day to Day

I spend a lot of time speaking with school districts to understand what their needs and challenges are. We try to figure out how we can help them work through some of those issues. I work with our internal sales and operations teams. I'll also give feedback to our development team if a particular course isn't meeting the needs of a district or if a district has a suggestion for doing things differently.
