Once upon a time, Matt Beaudreau was deep inside the schooling Matrix – first as a teacher and then as an administrator.
Today Matt is an in-demand and provocative education speaker and consultant, and a personal development coach to people all around the world. He is also the founder of the Acton Academy in Placer, CA; Acton is a program of self-directed learning with over 100 locations around the world.
