“We Believe in You and Your Ideas!”
a note from Kristin Daniels, InnovateK12 Executive Director
Hello! It’s an honor to introduce myself as the Executive Director of InnovateK12. Since 2014 I have watched the Minnetonka Public Schools Innovation Program, under the leadership of Eric Schneider, embrace crowd-based innovation, human centered design and the lean startup model. While understanding and buy-in of this unconventional process grew over the years, the message from district leaders was consistent from the start;
We believe in you and your ideas.
It is this unwavering commitment to -
and trust in
- staff that hooked me immediately and it’s the amazing projects impacting students that continue to inspire me today.
In my role as the Innovation Coordinator for Cambridge-Isanti Schools (MN) I cannot overstate the benefits of the InnovateK12 network.
Innovation can be isolating
. Being able to network with like-minded and persistent educators is critical.
As the Executive Director of InnovateK12, I am thrilled to watch new leaders be inspired by the success stories of our members and commit to creating a culture of innovation in their own districts.
The InnovateK12 network is
source for the innovation stories, resources, and best practices needed to empower frontline staff and fast-track their solutions.
There are so many exciting things coming up for InnovateK12 member districts and so many ways to Innovate K-12 Education!
Thank you for being with us!
