Struggling to raise student achievement? We’ve been there.
We know instructional design is a must for improving teaching effectiveness because we've been teachers, too.
Founded over 30 years ago by Dr. Max Thompson, a teacher and professor of education, Learning-Focused empowers educators and school leaders to create environments where students can thrive.
Today, Learning-Focused is led by Lindsey Hampton and Don Marlett, two education leaders with nearly four decades of combined experience in the classroom and in school leadership positions. With a team of instructional specialists, we’re making good on Dr. Thompson’s mission to build a culture of academic success in every school.
We understand how hard teachers work to do what’s best for students.
With a focus on effective teacher training, we help all teachers - even inexperienced ones - improve student achievement and help schools perform at a higher level.
