Brent Coley began his career in education in 1996, teaching grades four and five for 15 years before transitioning into administration. He is currently the proud principal of Alta Murrieta Elementary School in Murrieta, California.
Passionate about educational technology, Brent is always looking for new ways tech can engage students and families while increasing student achievement. His award-winning classroom website, mrcoley.com, promoted 24/7 learning with math review videos and iPod flash cards, and his students shared their learning with the world through their daily blog and classroom podcast. In his leadership role, Brent strives to support teachers as they pursue excellence by integrating technology and taking risks in their classrooms.
A firm believer in the power of collaboration, Brent shares what he learns through Twitter (@brentcoley), his website at BrentColey.com, and at educational technology conferences. He is also the creator of “Teaching Tales,” a podcast that gives educators a platform to share their stories and experiences.
When not working, Brent loves spending time with his wife and two teenage children, reading, and playing golf.
