Steve has been a member of the ThinkCERCA team for the past half-decade. Over that time, he has guided school and district partners alike through their personalized, blended learning journey with ThinkCERCA. He believes that at its core, quality teaching and learning are all about the relationships we build in the name of student success and that healthy instruction blossoms when you understand the important balance between the person and the product. As he looks to the future, Steve is most excited to empower all those around him, especially new districts partners well aware of how to utilize disruptive innovations in our classrooms today. In this work, Steve is joined by his beautiful wife Millicent, and their three awesome kiddos, Huxley, Luella, and Marigold.

What is your favorite quote? “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” – Dumbledore
