Jared is a former history teacher and school principal who deeply believes that authenticity in coursework, coupled with effective school culture, leads to the holy grail of education, and intrinsic motivation for students and their teachers. He holds a M. Ed. In Curriculum & Instruction and has his dream job at Gibbs Smith Education as the Education Publisher.
Jared loves leading the team at Gibbs Smith Education and is always in awe of their dedication, attention to detail, work ethic, and teamwork in publishing award-winning programs for students and teachers. He also cherishes leading teacher professional development.
Jared is married to his best friend and they have two beautiful daughters together, along with a squirrely dog named Max. After work he relishes time with his kids and wife, spending time playing, watching movies, playing music, reading, camping, and generally having fun. Any additional free time is spent chasing fish with fly tackle using his hand-tied flies, and being an obsessive New York Yankees fan.
