My students call me "Teacher Bruce" because one of my primary passions in life is promoting the joy and thrill of learning. The power of inspired and joyful learning is enormous. Throughout my experience as a special education teacher of many years (teaching since 1997, I have seen first hand, just how vital attention is to learning. And whenever we do something we genuinely love, it's effortless to be attentive and alert. Scientific studies show that our brain is most receptive and malleable when we are in a relaxed, easy-going and cheerful state.
With the Grow Brains Systems, I created one of kind game platforms that combines having fun with learning valuable, practical skills together into one experience. During my time as a full-time special education teacher and special olympics coach, I began noticing opportunities to improve how interested my students were in our classes. Over time a game developed that the students absolutely loved (and contributed to!). Eventually, after years and years of improvements and refinements, this game has become the version you see here today!
