  • We embody joy.  We support the voice of the teacher and bear the responsibility of celebrating each success story and understanding each concern.

What we believe:

  • We believe our purpose is to help art leaders find success in their roles, even if the solution is beyond our platform/offerings.
  • We believe relationships must start strong and stay strong.
  • We believe every interaction we have should add genuine value to our customers.
  • We believe regular, intentional cadences are essential to ensure no relationship goes stale.
  • We believe we are here to inspire both the ambitious and atrophied teachers by equipping them with resources and stories that inspire.
