Sim Stars

We created Sim Stars to honor and congratulate the exceptional educators in our network. It's a chance to highlight the hard work of the simulation superstars that we have the pleasure of working with and serving every day. Every month, we choose a Sim Star and share their story and simulation tips with like-minded educators through our social media channels.
