Leading Child Technology Education Company Hires New President, Expands Scope
CYPRESS, TX--(Marketwire - April 4, 2012) - Computer Explorers, the leading technology education franchise in the US, is expanding services under the leadership of Carol Hadley, its new president.
Hadley is an experienced business leader with a history of producing growth results, most recently with Houston-based Graco Awards, a premier manufacturer of military medals such as the Medal of Honor and the Purple Heart. While at Graco, Hadley helped start a sister company and was responsible for tripling revenue within one year. Hadley brings the same passion for business development to Computer Explorers.
"Education technology is at its most pivotal point in the past twenty-five years," said Hadley. "As classroom technology advances, Computer Explorers is positioned to offer solutions for teachers and to help an entire generation of students harness the power technology offers."
In Computer Explorers classes, over 33,000 students a week learn tech skills through fun and engaging programs like digital movie making, video game animation and LEGO robotics, all overseen by franchisees with passion and experience. Hadley is driving the company to take advantage of current classroom trends that have created huge demand for teacher technology training.
"We have the most advanced curriculum in the country for childcare centers, elementary schools, summer camps, rec centers and after care programs," said Hadley. "With the introduction of tablets, wireless enabled devices and the flipped classroom, schools are struggling to train teachers how to use technology; we do an excellent job of responding to that need."
Child service-based franchises are growing at a rapid pace this year, driven by education systems struggling to increase test scores and proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math. With job opportunities in STEM fields expected to grow explosively in the coming years, demand for education services that emphasize technology is at an all time high.
"It's a great time for Computer Explorers and we are the right company at the right time," said Hadley, "... possibly the best time in our 27 year history!"
