Hailing from rural Oklahoma, Tyler graduated with a B.A. in political science from Oklahoma Baptist University, where he developed a passion and appreciation for public service.
During his senior year, while attending Georgetown University through an exchange program, Tyler continued to cultivate his passion by interning for then-Senator Barack Obama. From there, he spent the next seven years in digital communications for political campaigns, non-profit organizations, and in the U.S. Senate.
For Tyler, working in advocacy and politics was an opportunity to make a positive impact in his community, and it’s the same reason he became a teacher. Tyler taught seventh grade history at Mickey Leland College Preparatory Academy for Young Men, a public school in Houston, Texas. He was named the 2017 Teacher of the Year and twice won the faculty ugly sweater contest.
Tyler is stoked that his role at E4E allows him to leverage his experience in digital communications to do something he ardently believes in: ensuring that teachers have a strong voice in the policies and decisions that impact their students.
