CRUMBINE ED HELPS EMPLOYERS ATTRACT AND RETAIN WORKING PARENTS BY OFFERING A UNIQUE BENEFIT THAT MATTERS.

We provide three levels of support:

Executive 1:1 Relocation

Executive families leave behind great schools when they relocate to Houston. Help them see our city as a place their children can thrive by providing personalized, 1:1 support from an expert in Houston schools. We'll help them find a school comparable to the one they are leaving and guide them through every step of the process.

 

On-Site Group Relocation

Relocating a division of your company to Houston? Let Crumbine Ed ease your employees' anxiety. We'll bring our expertise in education to your team before they make the move. We'll facilitate an on-site workshop to help families understand Houston's vast offerings as well as how to find and apply to the best schools.

Online Learning for Local Employees

Learning how to navigate school options and engage and support your child to be successful in school can take hours of research for parents--hours that working parents don't have. Provide access to our online Parent School and on-site lunch and learns, and help your employees access information on their own schedule. 

 

Thank you so much for all the support throughout the process. Your service was stellar all along.
— Onur Genç, CEO BBVA Compass, a Crumbine Ed Partner

The When, Where and How of Choosing the Right School 

The three most commonly cited frustrations parents face when choosing a school are not knowing when to look, what what to look for and how to choose the right school for their child. Parents attending this workshop walk away with answers to their most pressing questions and actionable steps they can take navigate the process. 

This workshop is also offered as a Pre-School Edition for new parents.

The Essential Partnership: Engaging  Teachers as Partners

Parent engagement is critical to a child's success in school. But for many parents, no one's ever handed them an "engagement" manual. We don't always know how to have an effective parent conference, advocate for our children or simply make sure we're supporting our kids' education the best way possible. Parents who attend this workshop will walk away with a framework for engaging their child's teachers as partners and printed documents to facilitate effecting parent/teacher conversations. 

Shifting Course: What to Do When the School You're In Isn't a Good Fit

Sometimes we find ourselves wondering if we made the right decision. Did we choose the wrong school? Is this school meeting my child's needs? How do we proceed if the school we're in doesn't seem to be the right fit? Parents attending this workshop will have the tools they need to engage their child's teacher and the school administration in critical conversations needed to move their child forward or to a better environment. 

The Weekly Step-Back: The Meeting That Can Save Your Relationship With Your Teen While Teaching A Critical Skill

In our professional lives, we know the value of using a SWOT analysis to mind and communicate our progress to goal. When we apply this practice with our teens and engage them in weekly step-backs, we not only teach them a skill they'll use forever, we also establish a framework for effective communication between parent and child.

Roadmap to College: An Overview

The path to college is a four-year process beginning day one of high school. This workshop provides a wholistic view of the critical actions students should take each year to best position them for college admissions.

We are moving from Pennsylvania to Houston, Texas for work. Our son has special needs of both being hearing impaired and diagnosed with ADHD. We were lost with no knowledge of the schools in Houston. We were referred to Aisha Crumbine from our realtor. Starting off in a panic of the unknown, Aisha, quickly wrapped her arms around our entire family, and gave us hope. The enthusiasm, knowledge, friendliness and dedication she put into her work to find our son the right school was unthinkable. She reached out to all of our son’s present teachers and got the ball rolling. Before we knew it, Aisha had numerous schools who wanted our son.
This made the move feel like it was the right choice. We are where we are today because Aisha was 100% on track and knew how to connect with all the right schools and people. We are forever indebted to her!!
— Kim and Bob, new to Houston
Aisha does an amazing job of understanding the specific educational and emotional needs of your child and finding the school that best embraces that criteria.
— Allyson, Executive Prospect (relocation)
Crumbine Education Consulting was the bright light during a time of confusion. (They) gave the best advice: remember what is really important–your child’s happiness, self-confidence, and the school that will most help her to achieve these things.
— Tracy, Houston
Aisha is an excellent listener and was able to quickly grasp the nuances of the school options my husband and I were wrestling with. She asked insightful questions, and helped me to organize and prioritize my own thoughts in a way that made me feel empowered and confident to choose the best school for my son.
— Elaine K., San Antonio
Aisha was the perfect guide in our school search. From Day 1 I knew she was great. I could tell she really listened when she mapped out a plan that perfectly married values that matter to us along with schools that provide the environment that would bring out the best in our child. She helped us see through the jumbled maze of essays and interviews, and ultimately helped us gain admission into our first choice! Thank you Aisha!
