Empowering teachers to deliver real, inspired learning through interactive workshops and online micro-credentialing.

Workshops

Delivered in-person or virtually, every interactive workshop focuses on the core vision that learning is fueled by student passion, driven by curiosity, and mastered through a personalized approach.

"Our team has come a long way this year and what you provided has improved our teaching. Many of my teachers mentioned things they implemented that they learned from you.

Thank you Ben and Justin. You are both amazing!"

ABOUT NUMINDS

NuMinds Enrichment was created in 2013 by two rebellious public school teachers, Ben Koch and Justin Vawter. Before NuMinds, Ben and Justin were master teachers, who brought their love of learning to the classroom. However, their spark made them different, forcing them to exist as "rogue" teachers who toed the line between following orders and creating a sacred learning space for their students.

  

After experiencing first-hand what happens when curriculum is standardized and made to "fit every student," Ben and Justin solidified their human-centric vision and started their venture. NuMinds was their way of sharing real inspired learning with the world.
