BEING A CLIENT SERVICES TEAM MANAGER My name is Becca and I manage the Client Services Team (CST) at Education Elements. I’ve journeyed through middle school classrooms, learning centers, and even a brief stint with car insurance to get here.
BEING A FREQUENT FLYER My colleagues and I on the Education Elements’ Design and Implementation team are on the road with our clients about 50% of the year. Inevitably, we sometimes discuss our travel preferences. Which airline has the best rewards program? Which airport is the easiest to get in and out? And of course after many cancelled flights over the years we have strong opinions about who has the worst customer service!

BEING A WEB DEVELOPER Looking back on the periods when I grew the most as a web developer, both in college and later in the workforce, I was involved in some form of personalized learning. This personalized learning was a middle ground between the tendency of colleges to over-structure learning and the organic chaos of professional communities of practice that had little or no instructional framework.
BEING A PEOPLE AND CULTURE MANAGER Last week, I got the opportunity to get out in the field and participate in one of our teaching trainings with the inspiring educators at Uinta School District 1 in Evanston, WY. As I was driving through the beautiful rolling hills and mountains of Utah and Wyoming with my colleague Keara, we turned to the radio for some inspirational road trip jams.
BEING A MOM "Traditional teaching is something that is given to you. Personalized learning is something you seek..." As a mom of a future Kindergarten student, I think a lot about how what I do at work through Education Elements means for how I raise my son. I am seeking ways that I can personalize learning for my son during the after-school hours so that I can extend learning in ways that are meaningful.
BEING A DESIGN & IMPLEMENTATION CONSULTANT I work in Education Elements’ Washington, D.C. office as a senior consultant on school design and implementation. No two days are alike, and the term “D.C. office” is used loosely - an office implies a place where you go to work every day. But we’re on the road visiting schools. A lot.
