Located next to Marin General Hospital, The Learning Lab, my work space, is equipped with multiple large screens, lots of resources, and ample room to get work done, comfortably.  It’s a flexible space for 1:1 coaching, family meetings, and small groups of up to 4 students. When it’s time to work, students plug devices into large screens, an environmental feature that boosts focus and engagement.
