Maureen Devlin @lookforsun

As the oldest child of six and one of a very large and loving extended family, Maureen always had a passion for working with young children. So after a liberal arts education at The College of the Holy Cross where she followed her dad's advice to "study whatever you want," Maureen worked for a few years in the marketing department in a multidisciplinary design firm, and then went on to get her master's degree and teaching credentials at Boston University. Soon after, Maureen became an elementary school teacher in Wayland, Massachusetts and has taught several grades throughout her 30-year tenure in the district. In addition to teaching, Maureen enjoys reading, researching, writing, presenting, project work, and serving on committees related to education development and innovation. She is passionate about moving schools in the direction of serving EVERY child with strength, love, and a top-notch education. And as a mom of three wonderful sons, she's had some good homeschooling to reach her goals as well.

Jen Robinson | @JensBookPage

Jen Robinson | @JensBookPage has been blogging about children's literature and growing bookworms since 2005. After her daughter started elementary school, she expanded her blog's focus to encompass the growing of joyful learners of all types: bookworms, mathematicians, scientists, artists, and more.


Jen believes that most schools today feature too much homework, too much testing, and not enough time for play and self-directed learning. She worries about the pressures on kids that are sapping their joy of learning. She thinks that we can do better. She feels that this matter is urgent. 


Jen has a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, and co-owns a small software firm serving the semiconductor industry. She grew up in Massachusetts and now lives in San Jose, California, with her husband and daughter.
