My name is Sam Banerjee and I am a business owner in McKinney, TX. I have an educational background in Math, Physics and Engineering, and three children in public school. I was driven to start Life Skills Academy because I realized that so much of the formal education I was given turned out to be useless to me, whereas a lot of things that would have helped me were not taught. For every Einstein or Steve Jobs that we did get I believe that there were many others that could have achieved similar greatness but derailed themselves with poor life choices; I also believe that many of these people could have been taught some simple skills that would have prevented this derailment, leading to not only their lives but also society being immeasurably enriched. In order to achieve this goal, we started teaching our Life Skills 101 class in the Spring of 2017, and have taught it continuously every semester since.
