Andy is an experienced educator, having served a variety of roles in schools and in the nonprofit sector since 1996. His first foray into executing professional development for teachers was in 2003, as an assistant principal. Before long he was asked to participate on the Staff Development Committee for the Archdiocese of San Francisco, where he assisted in creating training curriculum for teachers. Later, as the Dean of a San Francisco educational nonprofit, Andy envisioned, developed and facilitated a successful year-long training program for teachers rooted in relational philosophies aligned with (what he would later find out) Awakening Wisdom’s core tenets. He has continued similar work since and is overjoyed to have finally met the amazing group at Awakening Wisdom.
