Fully engage is a private educational consulting company that was developed via a passion and purpose to allow students, schools, and teachers experience success by focusing on the 5 areas, which I call flames, that ignite achievement: policy, process, practice, performance, and partnerships.

After years of serving diverse students, leaders, and teachers at all levels to provide quality instruction, FULLY ENGAGE was birthed with the hopes to continue to supporting individual schools, school districts, and SEAs to better understand how to use the 5 flames of education to ignite student achievement.  Dr. Christopher Holmes, the founder of FULLY ENGAGE has had the opportunity to challenge and provide opportunities for students, teachers, leaders, individual schools, and school districts by way of exciting and engaging professional development, peer coaching, real world and relevant connections, and data driven decision making. He has helped to identify barriers and create avenues with clarity to establish realistic and attainable expectations that strengthen key learning skills,  instructional effectiveness, increases accountability, establishes community, and promote increased student outcomes. 

He has worked his entire career toward positively addressing student learning which becomes evident through gains in achievement performance data.
Fully Engage stands firmly on the belief that all students CAN ACHIEVE, all teachers CAN BE HIGH QUALITY, all leaders EFFECTIVE, and all schools and school districts CAN EXPERIENCE SUCCESS.  In order for all of these beliefs to come to fruition, students, teachers, leaders, schools, & school districts need to be ignited in 5 areas, or 5 flames. These flames are:

1. Understanding All Federal, SEA, LEA, and school Policy
2. Utilizing Efficient Processes
3. Implementing Quality Instructional Practices
4. Identifying and Assessing Student Performance
5. Develop Stakeholder Partnerships
