Kerr Middle School
Dean of the REALM
Dallas/Fort Worth Area
The REALM, which stands for Rigorous-Arcade-Learning -Model, is a developing school of choice located within Kerr Middle School in Burleson, Texas. I have the honor of serving as Dean, as well as the lead designer, for this incredible endeavor. The school offers a gaming-based, personalized learning environment, incorporating quests, workshops, and episodes through a learning management system and teacher facilitators. By incorporating self-pacing, as well as a four house government, students take ownership of their learning. I advocate this disruptive style of learning and am excited about the positive progression of the REALM.
