Dedicated, Action-Driven Educators

Action Driven Education was created to offer teachers, schools, and districts the expertise, resources, and supports necessary to ensure the highest quality education for all students.

Our Vision

As teachers and administrators, we understand that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions to the challenges we face. However, we believe that education needs innovation and easy-to-use tools that hold the capacity to transform our daily practices without draining our time. We believe that action is best spent on front-end solutions and guided by results.

Our Mission

Our goal at Action Driven Education is to make educators lives easier by helping them save time as they work to design individualized inclusive learning environments for their students. At the end of the day, we got into this field to increase children’s academic achievement and improve their vocational skills. Let’s make this happen together.

Tim is a huge asset to any team. His background as an educator and administrator allows him to clearly understand the complexities and importance of individualization, collaboration, professional development, and supporting all students. He is sensitive to school and teacher perspectives while also working to improve student achievement through family involvement and bringing clarity to the complicated world of special education.
