Blyth-Templeton Academy - Co-Founder & Dir
Temp co-founded and continues to lead WonderLab, an incubator where projects are dreamed up and get done, and Blyth-Templeton Academy, a micro school founded in 2015 in Washington, D.C.. Both models have been largely informed by his work in 2012 as an Entrepreneur in Residence at the Acton Academy, a private elementary and middle school in Austin, TX that aims to move learners (teachers and students) from receivers of knowledge to self-seekers of knowledge. He is the Founder, former President and Chairman of Resources for Indispensable Schools and Educators (RISE), a national nonprofit organization working to connect second-stage teachers with schools in low-income communities where they will be more likely to succeed and remain in teaching. Temp serves on the U.S.-based Foundation Board of the African Leadership Academy, a pan-African secondary institution that aims to educate and develop outstanding students into principled, ethical leaders for the African continent.
