Jason leads REL Northwest's work with the Road Map for Education Results project, specifically partnering with the English language learner work group. Road Map seeks to increase the number of students who graduate or earn a career credential in seven diverse, high-poverty districts in the South Seattle area.

He holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from Temple University.
My work at Education Northwest combines my passion for equity with my desire for learning, enjoyment of problem solving, and love of teamwork. My projects working to improve English language learner outcomes or evaluating school or district programs push me a little past my knowledge and comfort level, so I am always learning and working with others.
