About the Founder


“Learning, when it’s unleashed, can positively impact a person’s life and help our world get better.” – Dr William DeJean


Dr William DeJean has been working for over 25 years in the teaching and learning profession and has helped thousands of teachers, principals and educational leaders unleash learning for all the students they work with.

William began his career as a high school teacher and was named teacher of the year among 26,000 teachers in San Diego County.  He has taught at universities in the United States and Australia and is an internationally recognised researcher and a sought after key note speaker, having presented at TEDX Canberra, Young Minds and Happiness and It’s Causes.

William created Unleash Learning ™ because no matter where he went he saw the same challenges taking place and found himself providing educators with the same evidence-based solutions to these problems.

The Unleash Learning™ team works throughout Australia and the United States.  Our team is made-up of educational experts who provide principals, teachers and schools with the tools to unlock effective teaching for every student in every classroom.
