About Us

CMK Futures is based on an idea that education can change the world, and that teachers are the stewards of this change. They are competent professionals and should be treated with trust and respect. Our speaking, consulting, professional development, and publishing company honors the learner in all of us.

Founded by Gary Stager and Sylvia Martinez, CMK Futures offers a wide range of services and resources, anchored by three main focuses:
