More About Todd
Todd is passionate about education and innovation. Todd was a classroom teacher for 7 years before taking the leap straight from classroom teacher to campus principal.
The one thing that is clear about Todd when you hear him speak or talk is his immense love for doing what’s best for kids despite limitations. Todd worked in an environment where over 90% of his students were on a free-and-reduced lunch. His campus and district were 85% minority majority and face many challenges. But that’s exactly what Todd thrives on. Todd loves a challenge.
Todd also travels and speaks about his innovative practices. He is also a 2x TEDx Speaker.
Todd actively blogs and share his stories through many different social media avenues, especially Twitter.
Todd has a wife named Lissette and twin boys named Liam & Brixton. They live in a small community in Brenham, Texas.
