As Executive Director of the Next Education Workforce, Brent collaborates with colleagues across Arizona State University (ASU), P12 educators, and the community at large to redesign models of schooling. Next Education Workforce encourages a model based on a team of educators, with a vision that ALL students have a better experience when learning can be more personalized. The team-based model allows students to interact with various adults, each bringing their unique expertise to the table. In addition to offering students a different learning experience, team-based models offer more equitable and sustainable ways to enter and advance as an educator.
Prior to his time at ASU, Brent was a co-founder and Provost at the Relay Graduate School of Education where he set the curricular vision for the institution and managed teams focused on curriculum design, institutional research, and programmatic innovation. While at Relay, Brent also founded TeacherSquared–a national center dedicated to increasing collaboration among teacher preparation institutions. Brent also has earned a doctorate from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, served as a founding staff member at IDEA College Prep, and was a National Board Certified Teacher in secondary science.
