Not all heroes wear capes… but Kami Heroes sure do! Our vibrant community of Kami educators is the champions of our mission here at Kami (and they genuinely do wear capes).
What is the Kami Heroes program?
Launched in 2017 and rolling into our third year, the program has supported the creation of a thriving, passionate community of teachers who love using Kami. Kami Heroes are thought leaders who are enthusiastic about developing new practices for using Kami and help other educators be more successful in their work.
Kami Heroes are selected for a year-long term where they serve as ambassadors by representing Kami at school PD training, conferences, and other events across the country.
