Educators continue to face rapidly changing and challenging work environments, and are often not given the budgets to achieve learning objectives. And The National Center for Education Statistics says 55 percent of educators are unsatisfied with their salaries. Bottomline, they aren’t paid for their true value.

She has been called an “educational powerhouse.” With almost three decades working in the education space, Dr. Bisa is helping educators rethink how to bring value to the marketplace.
