Juliette LaMontagne

Founder, Project Breaker

Juliette LaMontagne is the founder of Project Breaker, which connects interdisciplinary groups of youth with industry leaders and innovators to bring new ideas to fruition. Previously Ms. LaMontagne taught at public school and was a professor at Columbia University, where she also coordinated the MA student teaching program for pre-service teachers. The idea for Breaker and its creative problem-solving process began with her personal experiences in teaching. She noticed, time and again, that the most effective learning strategies often involved extra-curricular activities—the interaction and hands-on approach simply stuck better than more traditional methods. Breaker arose from the desire to focus and intensify these results and establish a model for education in the real world.
