TEACH Educational Consulting, LLC, was founded as a result of 20 years of research, innovative instructional practice, and progressive curriculum design. After 2 decades of working in schools and communities identified as “high risk”, the company founder, Vickie Crockett, determined to build a program that helps schools meet the unique needs of their students. Understanding the need for intense learning in the 21st century while also addressing growing emotional and social needs unique to schools and students in high risk areas, Ms. Crockett went to work designing a curriculum that did just that. Focusing on a blend of brain-based learning, SEL research, and cultural applications, TEACH from the HEART is a 3-level system that reaches school staff, families and communities, and students in a program of academic and social success.
