Freddie's proposal to change technology teaching in schools has caused varying reactions among people. Jack Whitaker and Frank Spencer are superintendents at different school systems who both heard Freddie's idea. Follow Freddie as he battles Jack, baffles Frank, and tests his idea. Can he turn his dreams into reality?

Freddie Lima is a technical unicorn who has worked as a Software Engineer, Systems Engineer, and Security Engineer. Freddie's wife Ginger is the CEO of the company they co-own, All Things Operations (ATO). In "Growing Future Operators," Freddie shares his professional experiences. Jack Whitaker is a technology curmudgeon who prides himself on teaching the classics. He has a great reputation as a superintendent, graduating more students than any other public school in his state. Frank Spencer is a pragmatic superintendent who tailors his program to give students the best possible future. The novel follows Freddie as he introduces his idea at the collegiate level and then works with the local school systems. Freddie knows nothing about teaching or schools, but he thinks a school system should implement his idea. The story contains helpful information for teachers, administrators, and students.
