Full bio

My name is Joe Genasci, I’m a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have been fortunate to have been around innovative educators throughout my lifetime. My first experience in school was near the Congo river where my Father started the first middle school model in the continent of Africa. My Mom was my teacher and my Dad was the Director or what we call a Principal. That school is still in my blood as a model for how personalized learning can occur. I believe smart technology is the only way to individualize learning in America. After all, it would be impossible to re create the Congo environment where there was no radio, no tv, and not even a telephone. We lived, learned, and entertained each other. Collaboration was easy and teachers and parents collaborated together naturally. It is my vision to unify people who support a student with a collaborative and predictive analytics tool that ensures all students feel cared about and treated as an individual.
