There was a time when teachers had to be the expert on everything they taught.
Well, times have changed.
We're Grayson and Zach and we are two elementary school teachers in Michigan. We believe that we are living in the midst of an educational revolution, a true turning point for which school can and should be.
We have worked together at the same school since 2013 and since then, we have given 50+ presentations around the state of Michigan on making learning more engaging and empowering for students.
In 2021, we wrote a professional development book for educators called, The Expert Effect: A Three-part System to Break Down The Walls of Your Classroom and Connect Your Students to the World.
In 2022, we will be releasing a children's companion book, The Expert Expedition meant for teachers or parents to use with students or children to guide them on an expedition of learning.
Short Bio Here
In 2021, we released a book for educators called The Expert Effect, dedicated to providing students with deep and meaningful learning experiences. Since then, teachers around the world have found inspiration and ideas to help engage learners in an unforgettable way.
The Expert Effect lays out our three-part system to break down the walls of your classroom and connect your students to the world. Within its pages you will learn how to:
Learn from experts outside the classroom
Become experts through Project-Based Learning
Teach as experts to authentic audiences
The Expert Expedition is a picture book for teachers to use as a classroom companion. This picture book continues that mission by providing a classroom companion to help bring the Expert Effect system directly to the people who make it all worthwhile: the children.
This imaginative story of learning adventure combines beautifully articulated verse with bright, vibrant, and whimsical illustrations. The Expert Expedition is bound to capture the hearts of educators everywhere and the imaginations of learners of all ages.
Speaking & Presenting
Our first passion is helping students. Our second passion is helping educators. Since 2013, we have lead over 50 professional development sessions for educators. We love connecting with educators at conferences or working with teachers in smaller groups too. Let's connect!
