Brent Mix

Humanities Teacher

I love teaching because I love learning. With more than 15 years of experience at the secondary and post-secondary levels, I believe that students learn best when their teachers model a love of learning, and bring a genuine sense of curiosity and wonder to the world and its cultures.

I began my teaching career at Boston Latin Academy, one of Boston Public Schools’ premier “exam schools,” where I taught freshman and senior courses in literature and composition. Subsequently, I returned to school, earning a Masters’ Degree in English from Northwestern, while also teaching and designing seminars on the Evanston campus. Seeking a more direct relationship with my community, I taught for several years for the City Colleges of Chicago and at Oakton Community College. Hearing about GCE and its mission to explode the walls of the classroom and integrate learning directly with the community, I was thrilled to join the team. At GCE, I teach courses in Humanities, bringing a wealth of experience in reading and writing, in addition to my desire to never stop learning.
