Meet the Founders
We’re Caitlin and Jessica, and this all started when we were teaching across the hall from one another at a school in Los Angeles.
One summer, we launched an ELA camp to help students get ahead for the summer, using the frameworks we’d developed for our own classrooms. It was a runaway success, and we realized that we wanted to share what we’d discovered with other teachers.
Because frameworks didn’t just make us better teachers…frameworks became the backbone of our successful writing curriculum.
With a great framework and approach to teaching writing across all writing styles, students’ success becomes inevitable.
At EB Academics, we support students through our student-centered motto of "rigor and engagement." One of the biggest struggles that teachers share with us is the lack of student motivation. Our Curriculum Team works hard to create resources that allow teachers to deliver engaging and rigorous lessons where students are participating in project-based learning activities such as escaping a haunted forest while practicing a variety of writing standards.
Our goal is to get students motivated to learn and love their English class while also mastering the standards (without them even realizing it). If we can do that - get a child to love learning - we know how much of an impact that will have on their self-belief and motivation and ultimately the trajectory of their future.
