Jonathan serves as Director of Academics for Brooklyn Prospect Charter School.

Prior to joining BPCS, Jonathan was the Founding Middle School Director of Brooklyn Laboratory Charter School, a STEAM school emphasizing personalized learning in downtown Brooklyn and winner of the XQ Super Schools grant. He spent several years working with KIPP NYC in various capacities, including School Instructional Leader, Director of Student Support Services, Special Education Coordinator and Learning Specialist. Prior to his work with KIPP, Jonathan served as a School Ambassador Fellow at the Department of Education's Office of Communication and Outreach for Secretary Arne Duncan. Before coming to New York as a Teach for America Corps member, he worked in both rural and urban Missouri, leading middle and high school programs in theater and debate. Jonathan spent his formative years in Southeast Asia, which profoundly shaped his desire to enter the education field and create spaces for agency and democratic deliberation for all. 

Jonathan received a B.A. from Drury University in Missouri with a triple major in speech communication, theater, and public relations. He went on to complete a MA in Integrated Strategic Communication also at Drury. After moving to New York City, he earned an MS in Special Education at Bank Street College of Education, and his Ed.M. at Columbia University’s Teacher College in Organizational Leadership. Currently, he is a doctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University, studying Urban Education Policy and Leadership.

When he's not working, spending time with family, or studying, Jonathan enjoys trying bizarre foods and playing the guitar.
