The name Jasperactive was inspired by a great teacher, Gordon Stewart. Gordon was a teacher of biology at George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh, Scotland. A teacher who recognized the potential of all his students, Mr. Stewart knew learning was about reaching out to the students, changing it up and making sure they understood the lesson – not just lecturing.
Known to his students by the nickname “Jasper”, a kind man, Mr. Stewart cared about his students and his community; This paid off when his landlady left him a 17th century castle. (True story!)
Jasperactive is a homage to all teachers who continue to inspire their students to master and maximize their learning potential and reach for their greatness.
