Our Team

The SchoolRubric team is composed of a diverse group of individuals who have experience as teachers, administrators, and parents both in the United States and internationally. We have a passion for seeing student success and believe that the way to accomplish this is through the sharing and exchange of evidence-based best practices, inspirational storytelling, and transparent communication.


Although our team and mission are small and grassroots, the SchoolRubric community reaches over multiple continents and countries. We have aspirations to help connect schools, educators, parents, and students from schools all over the world, with the understanding that we have more to learn from each other and share despite differences in geography, background, culture, and language.
