Thank you for a wonderful 2011

We wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for a wonderful 2011.  We started Goalbook with the simple desire to help educators.  We’ve been teachers before, and have spent years in the classroom and in schools of different shapes and sizes — the greatest challenge we faced was serving our students truly as individuals — individuals with unique talents and unique needs.  We knew in our hearts it was the right thing to do, and we knew there must be an easier way to manage the complexity, and to collaborate more effectively with all stakeholders around each student.

Thank you to everyone who have helped make our vision reality by using Goalbook.  And we truly appreciate those who have talked with us and provided feedback.  You’ve helped make our product better in leaps and bounds.  As always, reach out to us anytime.  Keep giving us honest feedback — we promise we’ll listen, we’ll stay humble, and we’ll keep working to help you the best we can.

It’s been an amazing journey for us so far, and we look forward to continuing the journey together with all of you in 2012.  We have amazing things in store and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Best wishes,
Daniel & Justin
