Brad grew up in Whitewater, Wisconsin, a small town in the southeastern part of the state. Since 1997 he has worked with culturally and linguistically diverse learners teaching fourth, second and first grade.
Reading self-selected professional development books, educational journals, attending conferences, and participating in book study groups outside of school with his teaching team have taught him so much. He’s been fortunate to work a lot with and learn from Anne Goudvis. Together they have co-taught and discussed teaching practice. “This reflection has helped to inform me of critical questions and next teaching steps.”
He believes that “to be a teacher it takes thinking, imagination, creativity, curiosity and a lot of energy. That’s why I became a teacher – I love that challenge. I’ve learned from critical theory that establishing a solid knowledge base and being conscious of my practices is the first step toward action and positive change.”
