"Doing is binary, you are either doing or you're not... For every teacher that wants to do... actually do something different... you guys (StartEdUp) are blowing s*** up."
Dr. Tina Seelig
"Hunter and Don, you are so inspiring, I love what you guys are doing for the classroom!
"I'm really impressed with your generosity in doing this (StartEdUp) podcast, and in the work you and Hunter are doing to make a ruckus."
"The fact that you guys get a class like this, an Innovation class, to fail and try things. It's a gift. Make sure you take advantage of it. I wish more schools had innovation classes."
(Tim Ferris, in a video call with Don's Innovation class).
"You've turned the classroom into an innovation factory."
"We need more Dons out there doing EXACTLY what you do. Teaching the way you think, doing the things you are doing with your class and StartEdUp."
"I appreciate all that you're doing for education. Inspiring."
"Hellbent to bunker-bust the outdated educational model of subservient students and out-of-touch-teachers, he's a vanguard for the exciting educational reform that's taking place across schools in this country at this very moment"
