GHF Ambassador Jade Rivera is an educator, writer and coach who specializes in designing innovative learning environments for gifted and twice-exceptional learners. Jade’s training in nonviolent communication and her Montessori credential inspire her educational philosophies and practices. She graduated from The Evergreen State College with a degree in Chemistry in 2002. Shortly thereafter, she was awarded the renowned Fulbright Scholarship for study in Thailand. After a brief, successful, yet unfulfilling career as a chemist she made a switch to alternative education. Jade also consults with families and educators through coaching, speaking and workshops to discuss the characteristics of neurodiverse children and how to develop strategies that best serve their education and social-emotional development. She teaches chemistry classes for GHF Online and is the author of Micro-Schools: Creating Personalized Learning on a Budget from GHF Press.
