DIRECTOR OF DESIGN
Hi! I'm Greg Wimmer. I teach high school social studies to students who like to think beyond facts and figures. I advocate for a different model of learning that pushes students to engage in their community, utilize thinking skills, and develop meaningful, passion-based projects. I also currently direct Project Nucleus, a side project that engages community animators in idea incubation sessions. I earned my graduate degree from the George Washington University in Educational Technology Leadership. I live in York, PA with my wife Becky and two sons.
Editor in chief
My name is Wes Ward. I’m a husband, a father, a writer (sometimes), and a teacher. I began teaching high school English in 1999 and, currently, teach at the college level as well. Over the past two decades of my career, I’ve seen changes in education and have appreciated almost all of them. An admirer of pioneers and change agents, I participate in the evolution of teaching and learning, urging my students and colleagues to do the same. I’ve been known to announce to my students, “Let’s not cover the curriculum; let’s uncover the curriculum.” In other words, I want them (us, really) to dig deep into the skills and concepts throughout the learning process, uncovering the why and how, not just the what.
The Idea guy
Patience, listening, and guidance. As a parent of two children, I practice these three principles. As a teacher I apply these same principles when helping students develop their ideas, in order to have their voice be heard. I understand that every kid does not want to be an artist. But I believe there is some kind of artist in every kid. I feel it is my duty to ensure that each child I meet gets my full attention to assist them with their creative journey. I also like hockey.
