Get to know Adam
Describe what you do in your role.
Each day I wake up and help improve public education for all Michigan kids; something I am deeply passionate about and a significant factor as to why I became involved in public service. Additionally, each day is different. From listening to and learning from thousands of Michigan educators, to working with policy makers on ways to improve educational opportunities, to helping educate the millions of Michiganders on what Launch is doing and why it’s different - there is not one day that is the same for me.
What do you enjoy the most about your work?
Learning from the people who make up the three legs of a child’s educational tripod; educators, parents and students themselves, on what motivates them and how we can all work together to improve equity of opportunity for all kids.
What are the causes you’re most passionate about?
Helping build an educational system that provides exciting and inspiring “aha” moments for all children in Michigan.
What inspires, challenges or motivates you?
- Inspiration: Seeing the faces of children light up when they are inspired about learning.
- Challenge: Taking an idea from ideation through implementation and making it successful.
- Motivation: The educational system we have that was created by people and therefore can be improved by people. Our only limitation is our creativity and will; both of which we have control over.
What do you love about Michigan?
Our water, natural beauty and learning about our history. We are an amazing state that is rich in so much.
