People need a powerful WHY in order to endure the difficulty of the HOW.
While each of our staff members have a personal WHY for choosing Mockingbird and this profession, collectively we believe in the wonder of learners, the power of educators, and the potential of education.
We engage in our work with passion, energy, and without apology. Our culture is driven by the mantra, 'I am not afraid of better!" and in this spirit, we continuously challenge ourselves, each other, and our clients.
Tamara's WHY: I want to wake up each day, have fun, work hard, and make a positive difference in the lives of my learners. Mockingbird allows me to do all three.
Shannon's WHY: I want to leave the world a little better off for having had me, to be a powerful force of hope and change for learners and educators who deserve better, and be able to learn along the way. Mockingbird lets me make a BIG DIFFERENCE and personally grow at the same time.
Ibby's WHY: Being a member of the Mockingbird tribe allows me to be part of an environment focused on a positive change, where I have the freedom to be who I am and the flexibility to be who I need to be for my family.
Note: Clark is Mockingbird's most popular employee. He frequently receives emails with updates, news, and pictures from our clients and learners. Feel free to contact Clark with your comments, stories, and pictures for Mockingbird.
Clark's WHY: I want to create havoc and mischief for other people without consequence. Mockingbird allows me to reach my highest potential.
Serious work and seriously fun!
We take our work seriously and ourselves lightly.
