Eric is a Research Associate for the Arizona Charter Schools Association, which is another way of saying that he is a resident “data geek.” Eric makes meaning out of educational data in Arizona, and communicates that meaning to multiple stakeholders across the state. He contributes to a research blog at the Association’s partner organization, the Center for Student Achievement, with the goal of presenting relevant and impactful data sets to lawmakers, school administrators, educational researchers, teachers, and parents. Eric taught high school math for four years in Ann Arbor, MI (Go Blue!), before moving to Tempe to pursue an M.B.A. from Arizona State University. He enjoys sporting events of all kinds, and loves to play soccer, softball, basketball and any other sport that allows him to embrace the reality of being a washed-up high school athlete. He loves working for the Association because he truly believes in the power of education.
I’M HERE TO HELP
If you have a data set that you aren’t quite sure how to handle, or a question about K-12 educational statistics, demographics, or academic outcomes in the state of Arizona, I can help! I love to use visualization tools like Tableau to communicate data – you can see a sampling of my work here. Data can be overwhelming…don’t go it alone!
