Our “Faculty”

The Ready NOW™ curriculum is developed and delivered by a network of professionals who share a passion for working with young people and preparing them for success.  Keep in mind, though, virtually none of our faculty are certified educators; they are volunteers who receive little or no compensation for their time.  The derive reward  from sharing information and experiences with learners and watching things click.

Our “faculty” volunteer time on a regular basis to deliver and improve Ready NOW™ programs to achieve their stated objectives.  Each person is a subject matter expert in his or her respective field and offers a unique perspective on curriculum design and delivery, with a focus on real-world application.  PhDs?  Not necessarily.  Advanced degrees and a record of success?  Absolutely!  Collectively, the faculty represents diverse talents, backgrounds, and work experiences, which enables them to inject valuable insights into their programs–insights which blend practical, relevant, and current experience with theory.
