We’ve got people talking

“A little bit of help…one afternoon at the most.” That was Bill’s request to Rich over fourteen years ago. Rich had no idea at the time this favor would be the start of Black Rocket’s quest to revolutionize education. Rich began his career teaching violence prevention to elementary students before going on to become recognized as “Teacher of the Year” at the #1 ranked high school in the nation. After earning dual Master’s degrees, Rich transitioned to school administration in one of New Jersey’s largest K-8 districts. In 2008, he left public education to grow Black Rocket. In the last few years the company has expanded from one location in NJ to 150 locations throughout North America. Rich continues to consult with schools and teachers on game based learning and embedded assessment.
