Brandon earned his Bachelor's degree in Communication Studies & History from Canisius College and his Masters in Education, specifically Special Education, from the University of Missouri St. Louis. As a Teach for America corps member, Brandon worked with St. Louis Public Schools as a Special Education Teacher. He comes to Kairos from a Special Education position at the Special School District of St. Louis County.
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
