Competency-based Professional Learning

Hello there,

Every Thanksgiving, we go around the table and say what we’re thankful for before slicing into the turkey. 

I'm thankful to have such wonderful clients — schools, districts, ESAs, and state DOEs, who work with such dedication to improving instructional practice and providing a sense of purpose for our educators. I'm thankful for our users — teachers, administrators, and other education professionals. I'm thankful also to our partners, assessors, and facilitators. And of course, I'm so very grateful for our dedicated staff here at BloomBoard.

Thank you so much for your support, and have a fantastic Thanksgiving.

Sanford Kenyon
CEO, BloomBoard
