The mission of EDUCATION: GET REAL!!! is to provide teachers of all secondary disciplines with authentic, relevant, comprehensive, all-inclusive, and proven materials -- saving them loads of TIME, hours of WORK, and a huge amount of STRESS -- all at VERY reasonable PRICES! As a team, we specialize in interdisciplinary materials and we believe teachers should prepare students not only for college but for the "REAL WORLD." Together, we have taught 40+ years in the areas of English, Business, Marketing, Economics, and Computer Science -- many of these courses were taught in an integrated team-teaching setting. As teachers who think outside of "their books," EGR authors create materials that are exciting, fun, realistic, meaningful, and motivating for students in order to prepare them for the challenges of college and the workplace.


"TEAMWORK MAKES DREAMS WORK!" As a team, our focus is on building and enhancing student creativity, leadership, teamwork, critical thinking & decision-making skills, interactive involvement, and research development by emphasizing hands-on, meaningful & relevant experiences in integrated curriculum settings. We are, therefore, constantly updating our materials to fit the skills and knowledge students need to develop and learn TODAY to be successful in the work world TOMORROW.


Together, we have been recognized by our peers and business community leaders for:
» Teacher of the Year in four secondary schools
» Outstanding Business Instructor for the Denver Business Journal
» Junior Achievement Colorado Teacher of the Year
» All-School Academic (Renaissance) Program Community Organizer
» Advisory Committee Creator
   (combining all CTE [Career & Technical Education] programs district wide)
