Consulting projects include the development of The University of Texas Elementary School, implementation of TRACK, an online tool to help high school students prepare for state tests, and drafting the business plan for the Institute for Public School Initiatives which was later approved by the Board of Regents.
Marina Walne is one of the most capable people I know in the field of K-12 education. We worked together over many years to develop charter school support organizations, The University of Texas Elementary School, and the Institute for Public School Initiatives. She has also served ably as a respected advisor to a wide variety of education policy makers and organizations. As a manager, Marina has an uncanny ability to identify the best people for leadership positions and an equal ability to recruit and inspire them.

The University of Texas Elementary School would not be in existence today without Marina Walne’s vision, hard work, perseverance, and complete commitment to quality. I am indebted to her for recruiting me to lead the school and mentoring me along the way.
