      Hey - where can we find Todd's email address in order to send him our own email addresses? Thanks! Sam

      I am very pleased, and not surprised, that you've reached your funding goal. My mom was teacher, educator, entrepreneur, and single mom who formed a Montessori school and I knew from an early age how important teachers. If you are near Columbus, OH, I know that at 82, she has a lot to say about how children learn. I've seen first hand how love of learning, instilled by parents and teachers with consistency and love, can propel a child to unimaginable places. Please consider backing another worthy journalism project and ask your friends to look at Beautiful Game on Kickstarter.

      I recently attended an informational meeting with my husband and son where Todd and Michelle spike about their vision for the school and I cannot express how lucky and fortunate I feel to be a contributor to this important movement. The lengths these leaders are going to are so admirable and I anticipate amazing results.

      I recently went to a gathering that Todd and Michelle had with parents who live in the district that they're hoping they'll be able to open their school. It's really great to see them sharing their approach to education with parents and answering any and all questions about their ideas and plans. Bringing teachers and parents together is an incredible way to start planning a new school. This project is the real deal.

      I had the opportunity to video conference with Todd last week. This dude is on a righteous mission and has the chops to make it happen. As a veteran public school teacher of 15 years, I can say that OI is the first serious attempt anyone will have made to profile what is going right in public education for the general public audience. Get behind this project!
