The Pitsco Way Leadership Team

Pitsco has long held the belief that learning and leading occur best in teams. A team approach is not only integral to many of the educational products and experiences we deliver, but it is also essential to how we run our company. The Pitsco Way Leadership Team is composed of the managers and directors who oversee the company’s day-to-day operations. They uphold the ethos of The Pitsco Way and ensure the company’s key initiatives and goals are implemented and achieved.

“In order to let kids learn, we must let them do. In order to let them do, we must give them hands-on experiences with relevancy. Students will own their learning if we let them.”

– Harvey Dean, founder, former educator
