Interim Education Manager

A child of the Pacific Northwest and a student of the world, Charlie has spent the past six years reimagining education through the lens of storytelling.

After earning his BA in History and Masters of Arts in Teaching from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, he quickly turned his love of history towards alternative education.

Charlie has worn many different hats in his professional career, working as a career coach for marginalized youth, a writing teacher, a curriculum designer, and an educational consultant. Charlie is a proud queer, transgender man who has been having difficult discussions about gender, sexuality, and intersectional identity for most of his life. 

´╗┐He is thrilled to step into the role as Interim Education Manager to continue having these conversations with members of our community here in Washington.
