Chad Pettit is a high school English teacher, Army veteran, fiction author, and poet. He has a master’s degree in English with an emphasis in rhetoric and composition. As a father and teacher, he has witnessed his children and students suffer from the anxiety of high-stakes, standardized testing for far too long. Chad believes that, not only are these tests inequitable and biased, they are inaccurate measures of student growth. Even worse, the current state of education is driving our best teachers away while pushing students through a system that rewards failure and mediocracy. Chad’s mission is to reclaim education on behalf of teachers and students for the sake of our future.
I am a 38 year old middle school history teacher. This year has started my 4th year in the industry. Prior to teaching I worked in a variety of retail industries. I have been married now for 7 years to an amazing woman, who is also a teacher. I was born and raised in a small country area in Eastern Washington. When I am not teaching, I am out on my boat with my wife, fishing on a lake or river somewhere in the state with my buddy, or at home cooking a meal.
