After spending six years as a classroom teacher and teacher-leader, Noah spent a year as student, instead of teacher, and earned an Ed.M. in Education Policy and Management at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Noah earned his undergraduate degree from Brandeis University with a double major in History and Philosophy. He began his career in education by teaching middle school world history in New York City. After two years in New York, he moved to Southern California to help build out a newly formed independent school that now serves students in grades 7-12. There, Noah designed and taught courses in AP US History, Ethics, and American Studies. In addition to his responsibilities as a classroom teacher, Noah oversaw the school’s 11th grade students, faculty, and curriculum. Having completed his degree, Noah is now a faculty member at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA. In addition to working directly with students in the classroom, Noah is committed to facilitating collaborative relationships between schools as a way to improve educational opportunities for all students.
