Innovating education with technology.
"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire."
--William Butler Yeats
"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child."
-- Forest Witcraft
