Let’s talk about learning.


Myron frequently visits schools, conferences, and districts around the world to share his 25 years of practitioner and leadership experience. He helps educators generate ideas and navigate issues surrounding grading, assessment, reporting and student voice.

Myron’s published work includes numerous journal articles and his best-selling book, Grading Smarter, Not Harder– Assessment Strategies that Motivate Kids and Help Them Learn (ASCD, 2014). His second book, ‘Giving Students a Say! Smarter Assessment Practices to Empower and Engage’ was released in January of 2021.

Myron lives in Summerland, BC, Canada with his family. In addition to being an author and speaker, he fills a part-time role as Vice-Principal for Communicating Student Learning in his local school district – Okanagan-Skaha 67.

You hit it out of the park – I couldn’t have asked for your presentation to be more aligned with what we need here to move forward this year. 

Lots of positive comments from many staff, including this was “the best opening of the year ever during my time at Jackson” and “Myron was my favorite presenter in my 26 years of education.”
