Lybroan James, Ed.M., attended UCLA where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics/Economics and a Master of Education from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education. Having taught for fifteen years, Lybroan saw the inequities in educational opportunities which ignited his passion to support the most underserved, disenfranchised group in public schools- young students of color. Lybroan designs and presents curricula and trains teachers on how to effectively instruct students of color for face-to-face and online environments. As a futurist, Lybroan has been studying the future of education and learning for over 25 years and has been a certified online instructor since 2001.
