Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer


"Our product team has worked with Jim over the last several years, to our great benefit. When we have a question about the impact of a particular choice we've made in our design - whether it's a particular interaction in our Power Words feature or a novel method for enabling teachers to review student work in-context - Jim is one of our go-to sources for the "ground truth" of whether and how this works for kids. He has earned my deep respect with his thoughtful approach to teaching and learning and his tireless appetite for innovation, in the right ways and for the right reasons.


Jim's is a voice worth listening to, closely."

Quim Sabriá

"Jim is a unicorn in edtech. He has proven impact in the classroom, he has lead thousands of teachers in the use of new technology, he has dealt with administrators and districts to develop strategies and execute them, he has moved passionate teachers through social media, as part of a community, and in person. You will not find another person with such energy, passion, and hard-working attitude."

"Jim provides insights from the classroom that are invaluable to edtech companies like mine. He's always thinking and sharing ways we can improve our tool and I love working with him!"

Karen Cowe


CEO Ten Strands

"Our work at Ten Strands focuses on environmental literacy. There are countless times over the past few years that we have referenced Jim’s PBL work and his focus on environmental service learning as an exemplar of the work we’d like to see flourish around the state. 


Jim is able to translate the work he does in his own classroom and community to help inspire other educators to do similar work. He has presented for us and represented the value of environmental literacy in numerous settings; including professional learning events, state hearings, focus groups, and more than once he has written powerful blogs that are widely read and appreciated by our audience. We feel very fortunate to know and work with an educator like Jim."
