Education Career Night: Panelist Highlight

Brian Dassler, the youngest Teacher of the Year (Broward County) and current Principal of KIPP Renaissance School in New Orleans, is just one of 5 top alumni speaking at our annual Education Career Night on February 23.

The founding teacher of the nationally-recognized Urban Teacher Academy Program, a unique K-12 to postsecondary education partnership that prepares underserved students for success as educators and educational leaders, Brian also led Stranahan’s comprehensive high school redesign which resulted in Stranahan being named one of the top three high schools in America by the College Board.
