Daniel Bauer and Ariel Curry: Behind The Scenes Look At Creating A Book

“A lot of school leadership books are for changing your school in some way. They’re about helping your students, which this is, but this is really for you (Ruckus Maker). This is for you as a school leader to become your best version of yourself and that’s something that you don’t see in a lot of school leadership books that are out there.  I’ve read a ton of them. I’ve published dozens of them. I know that for a fact this is not a message that you see in a lot of other places.” 

– Ariel Curry

School leaders know that productive student talk drives student learning, but the average teacher talks 75% of class time! TeachFX is changing that with a “Fitbit for teachers” that automatically measures student engagement and gives teachers feedback about what they could do differently.
