“This is our first year of collaboration with 806 Technologies, and it’s been a pleasant experience from the very beginning. After identifying the learning goals for our new cohort of principals and APs, we created a plan and embarked on the learning journey with one of the best coaches we could ever imagine. Evan Edwards, our consultant, has a great personality and can relate to anyone in the room. At the same time, she is laser-focused on the goals we have and gently guides every participant forward in their learning. Her style is reflective of the company’s approach to their customers – always positive, attuned to their needs, and focused on the outcomes. I would highly recommend working with 806 Technologies to anyone who is looking for solutions to improve their system to have better outcomes for schools and students.”
