Having run an independent school, I appreciate the value of a quality curriculum. Now I help create that quality by ensuring consistent, error-free materials. In the process, I get to do my K-12 education over and over, which I love!

I grew up studying the Heron Books curriculum. It provided me with the tools to learn anything I wanted to learn and to think for myself. I don't think there is anything I could do that's more valuable than making these solid gold materials available to others.

I love manufacturing the actual books that represent such a great

K-12 curriculum.

I struggled as a student until I found the Heron Books curriculum. It gives me pride knowing the work I do might help other students who may be struggling like I was.
