Jonathan joined Eastside Prep in 2005 as the school’s first Director of Technology. Jonathan spends a great deal of time keeping the school up to date with the latest technological changes, which has been no small endeavor over the past fourteen years. In addition to his teaching duties and independent study programs, Jonathan has implemented a laptop program in the Middle School, brought admissions and development databases online, and written programs for the school that manage data around students and teaching. He has overseen the technological needs of transitioning from ninety users to over 550 and from 12,000 to 113,000 square feet. Jonathan may be proudest of starting TEDxEastsidePrep, an annual conference that seeks to explore new ideas in education by bringing in speakers from outside the field of instruction. Prior to joining EPS, Jonathan spent four years teaching math and physics, chairing the upper school science department, and coaching volleyball and golf at the Bentley School in California.
“The agility and curiosity of the faculty around improving their craft is inspiring. They tackle new ideas with ease and use tried and true methods when those make the most sense.”
