Ian Kelleher

Teacher, and Chair of Research
The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning

Dr. Ian Kelleher is a leader in translating the latest research in how the brain learns into classroom practice for K-12 teachers around the world. As a science teacher at St. Andrew’s and The Dreyfuss Chair of Research for the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, he spends his days teaching physic and robotics while working on projects that help teachers translate the science of learning into everyday practices in their own classrooms. He has coached Boys JV Soccer for 22 years. And he is also the co-author of Neuroteach, which, uniquely, is written by teachers for teachers. He is that rare thing: an everyday teacher who also understands the science of learning and its implications for real schools. Ian grew up in the UK, has a PhD from the University of Cambridge, and suffers weekly as a Manchester United fan. Twitter: @ijkelleher
