“Scrum in teaching? Duh, why haven’t I thought of this earlier!” When I came across the thought-provoking article on EdSurge by Gayle Allen describing how Scrum can be applied in k-12 education, this was my very first reaction (I highly recommend reading her article before reading this blog if you’re not familiar with Scrum methodology). After spending many years in engineering and project management, I spent the next few school years as a middle school math teacher. Those two separate experiences have led me to Education Elements - a company that helps districts design and implement personalized learning - as a platform project manager, utilizing both skillsets to impact the world of education. Given my background and my current role, I can’t believe I didn’t think of scrum in teaching sooner!
