A Word from Dane:
We started Xcelerate to be different. 11 years ago I began to drive a bus for Northshore School District. The main reason was for the health care benefits. But something else happened: I found that my favorite group of students to drive was JR/SR High. We have fun on the bus while still staying on the rails and following the rules.
Around this same time a good friend was getting his Master’s Degree to become a teacher. I thought about getting my masters as well. However, I did not have the $25k for grad school. Fortunately I was approached by another bus driver about teaching drivers ed at Check-Ride in Woodinville. Thus, two great things came together: A subject I really liked (driving), with a student group I am able to communicate and relate to. And with my wife’s office management and customer service experience, we had the perfect combo to start our own school together.
I really enjoy teaching the subject of “Driver’s Ed”. At Xcelerate we will strive to the best in driver’s education while providing a fun atmosphere. My goal is to have the students actually look forward to class! Our office staff and instructors are passionate about what they teach and really care about our students and customers. You’ll be happy you chose us! Thanks for reading.
