In 1999, Allen Einstein developed Project 2000, an self-contained program for at-risk 8th grade boys. After he retired from teaching, he utilized his knowledge and experience in the field of educational consulting to launch The Einstein Educational Ecosystem (recently renamed and rebranded as The Einstein Method), a nonprofit focused on helping teachers succeed.

Allen joins Lynne on the Make Meaning podcast to share how is passion is aimed to educating children to be creative, contributing, achievement-oriented adults who give back to society. Through The Einstein Method, Allen and his team bring no-cost training to teachers throughout southeast Michigan. His seminars are integrative and engaging and provide educators with simple tools they can use in the classroom immediately.

Allen believes it is important to “pay it forward.” Lynne and Allen discuss what inspired him to leave teaching and start this company, what he loves about teaching, and what it was like to teach pop star Madonna.
