Meet the Team

One purpose: to support and strengthen Lutheran schools.

Our competitive global community has given families more choices than ever before for educating their children. TEC21 is deeply committed to helping Lutheran schools become the first choice in their communities. We work closely with administrators to promote best-practice learning environments. We come alongside educators who value innovation to help them find the best technology-based solutions for their classrooms.

Technology has opened a new frontier to learning. Our team is passionate about equipping teachers with fresh skills and ideas to engage, challenge and stimulate kids in a new world without walls.
