School has not been set up for students to struggle. There has always been one right answer, and teachers have always been there to show the right answer. There’s no right answer to this. I don’t know the answer. I remind my students to be okay with possibilities. Be okay with the struggle. It is okay to struggle. In fact, it’s good. You have to be okay with being uncomfortable.

You know what’s so awesome about this class? It doesn’t matter what level you’re on. I have one student who’s in all Special Ed classes and has a brain tumor, and he is 
flourishing in here. It’s where he sees his success. I don’t change or modify anything for him. When you give them autonomy – when they have a say of what’s going on, or are bought in… they rise. - Krista Gypton, NEXT Teacher, Walden Grove

<![CDATA[Pilot Program Testimonials]]>Sat, 01 Aug 2015 20:15:47 GMT/blog/pilot-program-testimonialsWe had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of students during our first summer camp and 6-month pilot program. Here is what a few of them had to say: 

SEED SPOT NEXT was the greatest experience I could have had. I got to learn so much and have fun… this experience was the most fun I’ve had in school. It shined a new light on the concept of loving to learn. My dream now is definitely to become an entrepreneur. – Anish, NEXT alumni

It’s a different way of thinking. Goes from ‘this is a problem, someone should fix that,’ to 'This is a problem, how do I fix that?’ Doing something out of my comfort zone was probably the best thing I’ve ever done. - Lexie, NEXT alumni

SEED SPOT unequivocally changed my life in the way that they gave me hope to become an entrepreneur in the future. – Connor, Summer Camp Participant
