Wavelength was created in 1980 by Jim Winter, a former high school English teacher, after sitting through one too many boring staff development days. Since then, Wavelength has won acclaim from audiences around the world for its comedic focus on the serious issues in education. Featuring a diverse cast of actors and educators, Wavelength uses the research-based benefits of humor, laughter and improvisation to train, motivate and inspire educational professionals. USA Today has called Wavelength "the link between learning and laughter," and the Journal of Staff Development wrote that "Wavelength has perfected the art of teaching teachers through the use of humor."
