Our Story

Three elementary schools in Rockford, Illinois were on the verge of being closed for poor performance.


We began coaching second graders at Jackson Elementary School in 2005 - 2006.  Two years later the school's academic results had improved drastically, and the school was off the closure list.


Four years later, our program was going strong, and we knew we were transforming the school, one student, one teacher, and one family at a time.

Due to their good achievements and the transformation we were witnessing, we decided to improve the physical condition of the two second-grade classrooms and the school corridors. Together with a group of volunteers, we worked for a week on an Extreme Transformation of the classrooms, and we gave them beautiful spaces that inspired teaching and learning, with vibrant colors, order and much needed love.


The program was working very well, now the 5th grade students were the mentors of the new 2nd grade students, and we had created an environment of respect and appreciation for each student, teacher and the school; and naturally the academic results continued to improve, and the bullying was minimized dramatically.

We continue coaching our program in other schools in Chicago, San Antonio, New York and Miami in the United States, villages in Nicaragua, schools in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and the Albergue infantile de Bogotá in Colombia, in both English and Spanish.


We have also taken the program to Kenya, where we not only implemented the program, in English, Spanish and Swahili, but assisted with the construction of the school, food, water and the integral development of the community. We are currently working on the development of the first Maasai library for the school and the first kindergartner classroom  – This  is our 2024 Maasai Beehive project.
