Anders founded SchoolOps to ensure that schools and organizations have access to high quality, role-appropriate professional learning for their operations teams.
Previously, Anders served as the Founding Director of Operations for a school in Baltimore. Over his tenure there, he grew the school’s operations from scratch, ultimately serving nearly five hundred students while consistently outperforming peer schools. Finding that there was no professional learning built specifically for operations professionals, Anders traveled widely to shadow other school operations leaders, meet with mentors, and piece together resources for himself and his operations team.
Afterwards, he joined SchoolKit – an instructional professional development organization – as their Director of Operations and Innovation. Experiencing the abundance of high quality professional learning in the instructional world compared with the absence in the operational world inspired Anders to found SchoolOps.
