Three women, three generations of educators, three teachers sat together in a curriculum training during a sweltering Arizona day in June. That day in 2012 would start a professional and personal journey, eventually bringing us here to EduBrew.
Brit, the youngest and energetic one (even eight months pregnant!) and Julia, a bit older and innovative one (with a year-old at home!) already had been teaching together when they met Wendy, the oldest and most experienced one. The bond was formed–tentatively at first–and slowly over years until the summer of 2018 when Julia and Wendy joined the Professional Growth Department in Gilbert Public Schools. They merged their grand ideas, big dreams, and varied skill set to impact GPS’s students and teachers. The following year, Brit joined the team, completing the triad and changing the future.
This at-first-tentative bond grew into a true friendship and professional dream team. Each of us brings gifts and expertise to complement the others. We learn from each other. We support each other. We edify each other. But through and because of our diverse perspectives, our focus remains the same: providing teachers inspiration and specific, easily-implemented strategies to make instruction and learning more beneficial and enjoyable for all.
