Brian’s entire career has been invested in the field of education, with 15 years serving as both a teacher and an administrator at Christian Classical Schools. Presently, he is the Dean of Students and a chemistry teacher at Regent Preparatory School of Oklahoma.
Throughout Brian’s time in Classical schools, he has learned to value deeply the ends of a Classical Christian Education: the cultivation of wisdom and virtue. Students flourish when these ends are cultivated through the means of healthy school relationships—both students to teachers and teachers to administration. Brian brings this conviction to ESI for providing a meaningful Christian and Classical education to underserved students in the Central Florida area.
Brian holds a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Vanderbilt University's Peabody School.
