TEDxFoCo - Bryan Maddox - A Fort Collins Education Reform

Bryan Maddox has been involved in public education for 13 years. For the last four years he has been involved in the development and implementation of junior and senior high alternative programs. Most recently, under the direction of Eric Larsen, he has helped develop a junior high affective skills-based program based on the Discovery Program. His belief in a culturally based classroom and school where all members are treated with dignity and respect is the foundation of his venture into training and supporting the Discovery philosophy. He has witnessed this program in several schools and has seen the profound grassroots change it can facilitate. Bryan has also coordinated a summer program that collaborates with Colorado State Parks, Colorado Division of Wildlife, and Thompson School District in a high-adventure, experiential-skills program. Over the last five years, this has proven to be an effective model to enhance both affective and academic skills. Bryan lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with his wife, Amy, and three children, Jessye, Forrest, and Daniel.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
