Abre currently serves 17 school districts. Many are coming on board for the first time. This is our first “school start up” we’ve had as a company.

It’s a blast.

When I was in the classroom I always loved this time of year. Education is seasonal. There are beginnings and middles and ends. And then new beginnings and middles and ends. The cycle is incredibly satisfying.

I liked the routine and the schedule. I got jazzed getting back with a new set of faces and starting the learning journey. I loved building on what worked the year before and fixing what didn’t.

These are sentiments, I think, shared among educators. We see it as we go into schools for Abre training. We see friends and colleagues sharing summer stories, hanging posters, and lesson planning. It’s fun to tap into the energy.

It’s also fun to be the energizer. When teachers see Abre, the Student App, and Guided Learning the first time, they start to realize the time they’ll get back to focus on their teaching. We love adding Abre to their teacher toolkit.

Welcome back educators. Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for the time and commitment. We hope this year is wonderful in many ways.

And if there’s anything we can do to help, let us know.
