ABOUT ME

Todd Hollett is from the rural setting of Jackson County, a quick 20 minutes north of Athens, Georgia. He studied International Relations, focusing in Community Development, at the School of Public and International Affairs and was the fifth generation of his family to graduate from the University of Georgia.

During his undergraduate studies he recieved the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE)grant from the United States Department of Education to work in Fortaleza, Brazil in the public school of CAIC as a technology teacher. Simultaneously he studied Instructional Technology at the Universidade Federal de Ceara.

After graduating the University of Georgia he was accepted into the nationally renowned Teach For America program which placed him in the Rio Grande Valley where he taught 8th grade reading. His dedication to closing the opporutnity and achievement gap allowed his students to obtain the highest scores within the district with 96% passing the end-of-the-year state exams.

Currently, Todd works with the Clarke County School District as an Instructional Technology Specialist; a district leadership position that enables him to continue to work with students and teachers to close the high opportunity gap caused by the increasing levels of poverty in Clarke County.

Interests
