Dr. Jaime Brainerd E.d.D.
Has been involved with education her entire life and has had one big dream about changing our education system since she started school. Throughout her life, she studied all her teachers, taught her siblings, babysat for her small town, and tutored kids while in high school and college. Since the creation of the Internet in the mid 1990’s, Dr. Brainerd had an experience where she met someone from another country who taught her everything she wanted to know about The World Wide Web.
The culmination of her experiences lead her to an idea on how she could achieve her dream of changing education so that we could learn from anyone, at any time, and anywhere in the World. While still in high school, Jaime made plans to study education at its highest level to better understand how she was going to accomplish her dream.

Dr. Brainerd has taught grades K-8 from 2000-2018, majority of her teaching was 3rd through 8th grade for 15 years at Los Angeles Unified School District.
