Passionate teacher, Jacob is a lifelong learner who believes the commitment to learning allows you to continually define and refine your passions and identifies topics of interest that would have otherwise remained buried. The philosophy he shares with his colleagues regarding teaching, “is ensuring the engagement with students in the most relevant, meaningful and accessible way possible.”
Jacob is the Program Director of Brilliant Labs, a not-for-profit educational organization, where he is responsible for the design and support of innovative educational opportunities for K-12 students. “In short, I get to be a geek beyond geeks; something my childhood self only dreamed of while watching Star Trek.”
The goal of the organization is to provide students and educators with the experiential learning support they require to prototype innovative and creative solutions to problems they identify in their community, while redefining entrepreneurial spirit.
