- American Education Reform Advocate
- Public Speaker
Raised in and out of foster care from birth until high school, AJ bounced around enough to have attended 11 schools prior to graduation. He attended urban, suburban and rural schools; private, public, and parochial schools; lived with white families and families of color; lived in racist communities and inclusive communities; experienced loving homes and homelessness.
Guided by the idea that student outcomes don’t change until adult behaviors change and drawing on his intimate familiarity with the triumphs and terrors of America’s safety nets for children, AJ has devoted much of his life to advocating for the well-being of our nation’s most vulnerable youth.
AJ currently serves as Conservator at DeSoto, Texas Independent School District; Education Faculty at the Leadership Institute of Nevada in Las Vegas; Director of Governance at the Council for the Great City Schools in Washington, DC; and has served as Board Chair for the Kansas City Public Schools and Deputy Commissioner of Education for the State of Texas.
