Gary Chapin.

Gary Chapin has been working in education since 2000, first as a teacher — ninth grade social studies in central Maine — then as a curriculum director, a Dept. of Ed. researcher, and most recently, for nearly ten years, a consultant, advocate and supporter of equity based practices, such as competency-based learning, performance assessment, adaptive leadership, and collaborative cultures.

He is deeply fascinated by questions like: What should kids learn? How do we decide what kids should learn? How do we learn what they learned? How can learning what they learned help them learn more? Also: systems.
