We Are; We Are Not

You are here

This blog post is a long time coming; we did this exercise as a team around Thanksgiving (yeah, I know, that was a while ago). But, I’m excited to finally have some time to put this together and share it. We asked everyone to finish the sentences ‘We are…’ and ‘We are not…’ from the perspective of Team COMET (COMET’s brand). Here are some of the highlights:

  • We are informed; We are not judgmental or critical
  • We are clever; We are not reckless or cliché
  • We are a company who wants your children to succeed; We are not test crazy for test's sake - assessments should have a purpose
  • We are enabling our customers to support children; We are not providing direct service to children
  • We are passionate about our system; We are not overly nerdy about it (well, some of us are nerdy about it but not everyone)
  • We focus on the child's journey; We are not just a moment in time
  • We are the software; We are not the solution - you are
  • We are supportive; We are not invasive
  • We have experience and seek to inform; We don't tell you what to do
  • We are technically savvy; We are not hard to understand (at least, we try not to be)
  • We are the narrator; We are not the author
  • We support evidence-based approaches; We are not limited to evidence-based approaches
  • We are a close-knit team; We are not invasive with our co-workers
  • We are #MakingDataCool; We are not #DataForDatasSake
  • We are making up a COMET theme song; Or, maybe we are not.

Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about us and how we think about the work we do and the service we provide. To learn more about our story and how COMET got started, click here.
