Meet The Creator
The Simple Solutions Approach was created by Nancy McGraw, a master teacher with more than 20 years of experience in a wide variety of subject areas and at many grade levels. Nancy has always been driven by a passion for excellence whether in helping children to overcome anxieties and excel at mathematics, developing after school and tutoring programs, or creating and growing a successful publishing company. Nancy McGraw is the President and CEO of Bright Ideas Press.
Simple Solutions has its roots in an elementary classroom near Cleveland, Ohio. One teacher’s passionate desire to help all students experience success in mathematics gave rise to what we call the Simple Solutions Approach. Today, Simple Solutions is a successful publishing company that provides materials for daily use in thousands of classrooms across the United States and beyond.
Simple Solutions is flourishing because of the dedication and support of its employees, many of whom are also educators. We take pride in the wide variety of excellent products that now incorporate the Simple Solutions Approach. These materials help children learn information that will actually stay with them for a lifetime. It is our goal to continue to meet the needs and demands of today’s teachers and students by creating the highest quality educational materials.
We greatly appreciate the support of our customers over the years. Without them and their suggestions, we would not be where we are today. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with all educators – teachers, parents, and school administrators – in helping their children to become lifelong learners.
