Naphtali Bryant, as the Founder of Spark-Ed University, comes to his role with the dual experience of current student and school administration professional.  Add to that, the extraordinary event of being hired by a school that he’s attended.  While seeking out educational opportunities, Naphtali literally built his own experience making the most of both educational and leadership opportunities, and he did it so well, and so inexpensively, that he built a business around it…called Spark-Ed.

In this interview with Publisher, Mary Kurek, Naphtali shares his story and how what he’s doing to help students to become the architects of their own education.
