Maria Kopicki, CEO & Founder of EVOLVEK12, taught in the public school system for 30 years, including 5 years beyond her retirement eligibility. Making the tough decision to retire as a public educator in June, 2019, Maria received her real estate license, and has chosen to spread the love by founding and pursuing EvolveK12.
Maria’s main goal in creating this non-profit is to prevent kids from struggling and missing opportunities due to circumstances that are not in their control. Education in America is in a national crisis; drastically under funded and in many instances lacking basic staple services children need to become successful! Studies have proven that a lack of funding has impacted students achievement on standardized test scores! Maria’s first hand exposure of experiencing the loss of curriculum, resources and programs that were very much at the core of Maria’s passion has enhanced her unwavering commitment to help as many people as possible.
