Education by Design,

Not Default


The weight of childhood is heavy in American today. 

"Burned out" is not supposed to describe children, but it does. A growing list of performance requirements comes accessorized with a longer list of labels and disorders for children who struggle to measure up. Required to learn what the standardized test says is important, many children are confused about their identity and their purpose.

Childhood isn't a season of measuring up. It's a season of growing up. Education by Design, Not Default offers to recalculate the route we're offering to our children at school and at home. Experience the transformational power of brave love. 

How Brave Love Creates 

Fearless Learning


Why It Matters

I wrote this book to invite the world to create schools without fear. It’s not just for educators. It’s for leaders and everyone who cares about children and the future of our great country. If you'd like to learn more about my work in education, please visit
