About Us

Our Mission

Streamline classroom processes to help teachers overcome the unique challenges of early childhood education.

Our Story

Greg Gorman, a Southern California kindergarten teacher, created ESGI in 2002.  He knew first hand that the traditional, paper-based assessment process was painfully inadequate in providing the real-time student performance data needed to effectively drive instruction.

Subsequently, Greg went back to school to learn computer programming, and created the ESGI web-based assessment and reporting system. He named it ESGI, which stands for Educational Software for Guiding Instruction. This online system manages the thousands of bits of data involved with tracking student mastery of letters, sounds, sight words, number sense, and more.

Twelve years later, teachers everywhere are celebrating ESGI!  Greg and the entire ESGI team want to thank you for your interest, and are here to provide assistance to ensure your own success with this early childhood solution!
