Tim spent the last decade of his life working on statewide campaigns to improve California’s policy landscape for children and young people. He noticed that the best and most creative policy solutions to the challenges and injustices that young folks face tend to come from…young folks. This ultimately motivated his career switch. He returned to the classroom in 2018 where he is now surrounded by more energy and joy and where he hopes to inspire young Oaklanders to go and author the laws and policies that for too long have been crafted by privileged adults that often lack connection to the public systems they influence.
Prior to Latitude High, Tim taught statistics to college students at Cal-Berkeley and he taught English at Rudsdale Newcomer High in Oakland. In his spare time, he enjoys weekend camping trips and home-cooked meals with his family.
