Praise for Einstein Education Ecosystem
"The Einstein Education Ecosystem Workshop was a valuable professional development resource that changed the mindset of every youth worker that attended the session. A month later, I am still hearing staff sharing what they've learned with others and referring them to contact the EEE Foundation. As a trainer and facilitator myself, I was impressed with the level of interactions and activities throughout the workshop while providing key facts and pertinent information that kept the participants engaged throughout the session. The information received is an intricate factor in providing a quality learning experience for youth whether in school or out of school activities."
- Kimberly Newberry, Founder, President & C.E.O., Developing Kingdoms In Different Stages (Developing K.I.D.S.)
"Educators receive numerous hours of Professional Development throughout their tenure as a teacher. As a building principal, and instructional leader, I try to provide professional development opportunities that will appeal to all staff. Allen Einstein and Karen Boyk, from Einstein Education Ecosystems, presented real world best practice strategies that can be immediately implemented in the classroom. Not only did staff enjoy the presentation, covering the most relevant topics facing educators today, they are still talking about the information weeks later."
- Pam Vermiglio, Principal, Oak Park Freshman Institute
"The workshop presented by Allen Einstein and Karen Boyk at Pasteur Elementary in Detroit was exceptional! Never before have I seen teachers so animated at a meeting after school hours. I visited a classroom a few days later and saw three of the methods they demonstrated being used. The students seemed more alert than I had ever seen before. It would be great if every educator could experience the Einstein Education Ecosystem!"
- Marcy Feldman, President, Pasteur Elementary School Alumni Foundation
"Allen Einstein and Karen Boyk, of the Einstein Education Ecosystem, presented to my Schoolcraft College class. My students are in the Alternate Route to Certification Program, all working towards becoming certified teachers. My students found the information presented to be more helpful than any other Professional Development they had been to. The information about how boys’ and girls’ brains work differently was invaluable. The presentation was appropriately paced to keep attention, yet in depth enough to provide easy-to-use techniques and websites that the students could take to their classrooms immediately. Many indicated that they would begin using Brain Breaks to increase attention and productivity. They were also anxious to try the 8-page book, and other strategies. An evening well spent!"
- Luanne Kairis, Adjunct Instructor, Schoolcraft College
"Recently we were looking at some trend data and noticed some difference between our boy and girl learners. I spoke with Allen Einstein and he shared the research and practical information from Einstein Education Ecosystem presentations. He and Karen Boyk presented to my staff and they really enjoyed it. They shared research, told personal stories and gave practical strategy information that would work in the classroom. Additionally, they left us resources for the teachers to continue their learning. Allen and Karen were able to engage my staff and gave us the knowledge needed to continue to move forward "
- Jim Lalik, Principal Pierce Elementary School, Birmingham Public Schools
"I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing Allen Einstein for more than a decade. He has been and is an individual who has a strong commitment to improving the lives of children. As an educator he chose to work with the most challenged children in the school system. Through fantastic processes and strong relationship skills he was very effective. This work lead to him achieving the status of Champion for Children. He works diligently to not only give the students technical skills for learning, he also gave them life skills. The results were and are that these children have become successful adults. Mr. Einstein has a keen sense of the tools necessary to enhance and train teachers to be productive in todays challenging environment. There are two types of people: Those who wait for things to happen and those who make things happen. Allen is definitely a person who makes things happen."

“Allen Einstein has helped to change how Avondale teachers view their students and ultimately how they teach to better reach the students they serve through purposeful and engaging learning strategies.”
- Dr. James Schwarz, Superintendent, Avondale Public Schools
“His approach with students can – and should – be replicated by other educators, and this professional coaching is part of the foundation of his work.”
- Paul DeAngelis, Director of High Schools, Ann Arbor Public Schools
"When I was 12 years old, I was fortunate enough to be placed in Allen Einstein’s Project 2000 program. At that time, I had failed all of my classes, was constantly getting in trouble or in fights with my peers, and drifting apart from my family. I had serious deep-rooted problems that I had to understand and solve in order to become stable and excel at what I do. During my time in Project 2000 I was taught many things that I would not have learned through conventional forms of education. This made a serious impact and prepared me for my future. I am very lucky. In many professions in life there is a constant need for creative problem solving which applies to teaching young people. Allen Einstein is able to help teachers and students understand ways in order to do so specific to their situations. "
