Logic & Leadership:

Making Classrooms Simple

"Your Students' Success Starts with You"

A Hybrid Course

Your Value as a Teacher

Teachers are vital to a student’s personal and academic success. However, many teachers are overworked, stressed out and struggle to stay on top of their work. The current education system requires teachers to meet unrealistic standards. This professional development hybrid course is designed to help teachers adopt a unique classroom management approach that allows them to meet standards, provide more individualized attention, and help students learn material up to 10 times faster.

A New Paradigm

We believe that an effective teacher is someone who sees the big picture, understands their students, and doesn’t try to force change upon them. Instead, they create change within themselves and thus, their environment. An effective teachers should help students feel more accountable for their education and more hopeful for their future. This is the most advanced, and radical approach that has been introduced in education in the last 25 years.


"The Teacher of the Future is one that does not worry about meeting standards, does not waste time doing administrative work, and most importantly, is able to love their students."

Dr. Dean T. Kashiwagi

Professor, Fulbright Scholar, IFMA Fellow, CIB Chair, ISM Academician
