About Us

Our founder was kicked out of elementary school. To him, school was the thing you had to put up with in between tinkering with motors and building things in his garage. 20 years later when he started his teaching career, he realized that he was learning the whole time. He learned by doing.

So he brought that way of learning to his classroom. After being nominated for Michigan's Teacher of the Year, he wanted a way to bring it to every student. 

CrossBraining is based in Ann Arbor, MI.
