Loop 13 began with Mark Rogers realizing, entirely on accident, that teaching a consistent cohort of scholars year after year yielded outsized results.

After 6 years of teaching the same group from 7th grade to graduation, he knew that a full Kindergarten to 12th grade loop would be the next step in raising awareness.

Mr. Rogers began his first year in Kindergarten at Austin Achieve for the 2018-19 school year. Now in the 2020-21 school year, he is teaching those same Kindergartners as 2nd graders. Please explore this site and join the looping movement. Looping is a powerful tool that will improve learning outcomes for our kids!
