According Sara Potler LaHayne, there are two kinds of entrepreneurs: serial entrepreneurs always on the hunt for something new and those who are unconditionally committed to solving a particular problem. She considers herself the latter and has dedicated her entrepreneurial pursuits to providing schools with tools to support social emotional learning. Sara is the founder & CEO of
Move This World
, an evidence based, digital social emotional learning program for students in pre-K all the way through high school currently utilized by half a million youth across 23 states. Ms. LaHayne presented her mission and her platform at the EdLab seminar in October 2018.
