David is completing his third year as the Head of Episcopal Collegiate School. His thirty year career in education has included a number of schools across the Southeast– McCallie (TN), Charlotte Country Day (NC), Spartanburg Day (SC) and Episcopal School of Baton Rouge (LA). Along the way, he has advanced his personal education earning a Master’s degree in Mathematics Education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction from Penn State University.
