David Blodgett is driven to raise the standard of public education in the greater Las Vegas area by founding and leading an excellent charter school.

David’s work as a 2009 Teach For America Corps member in Las Vegas awoke in him a need to contribute everything within his power toward the larger goal of providing all children in our country with high-quality education. In addition to the time he spent in the classroom, David also completed an apprenticeship with Clark County’s Superintendent. Since then, he has brought his leadership skills in operations and development to a variety of education-focused nonprofits in Nevada. He also worked as part of a team of talented writers whose high school English language arts curriculum was published by the New York State Education Department on EngageNY.org.

David holds a B.S. in Business Management from Brigham Young University and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
