Brian coaches, trains and supports ASSISTments teacher users through the development of professional learning opportunities and resources like ASSISTments webinars, user resources and artifacts. Prior to working for and with ASSISTments, he taught for 10 years at the high school level in Washington D.C. Public Schools and Norfolk Public Schools in Virginia. As an educator, Brian served as a grade-level teacher-lead, content lead in Social Studies and Science and organized after-hours support for struggling Math and English students.
I am driven by my passion for effective teaching and learning; especially ensuring that all students have access to a high-quality education regardless of their zip code, race, or economic status. I am continually inspired by my fellow educators who devote so much time, energy, and personal resources to serve students and their families effectively regardless of the circumstances and challenges they face. It is my hope to continue supporting and serving those teachers and to ensure they have access to the knowledge and resources they need in order to be the best that they can be.
