Brad BuchananDirector of Mathematics Education

Bradley Buchanan earned his math degree from San Jose State and has been teaching middle school math and logic since 2013.

"I cultivate an educational atmosphere by offering my students respect and expecting nothing less from them in return. My classroom is often lighthearted and fun, but always predicated upon focus and productivity. My students understand that my lofty standards are the result of an unwavering belief in them and their abilities to overcome and achieve.

Among the first things I tell my students is that if they learn only math from me, then something has gone horribly wrong. Education is not about a collection of facts, but inspiring minds and empowering the learner to action. I strive for my students to believe in themselves, to think for themselves and to understand the value of character."
