Brandon Witcher is a proud native of Camden, New Jersey. He grew up right across the street on Mt. Ephraim Ave. and attended Evangelism Today Christian Church. As a member at ETCC, he attended church faithfully and was a part of the first praise dance ministry at the church. He attended Creative Arts High School in Camden and studied instrumental music. Brandon was a true renaissance man during his time in school; he not only starred in theatrical productions but was also a part of the award winning choir that traveled to Italy, competing internationally.
After four great years in high school, Brandon attended Lincoln University. There, he continued his passion for music and sang with the Lincoln University Concert Choir and joined the returning LU Orange Crush Marching Band. Later Brandon eventually became a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Beta Chapter in 2006.
After graduating with a B.A. in English, he returned home and began teaching high school to help uplift the community he still calls home- Camden. He was an advisor at Camden Big Picture Learning Academy (formerly MetEast), and has continued to be an advocate and practitioner of the Big Picture Learning model which puts student voice and choice back into education. He was honored by the national network in 2014 when he received the Advisor Awrd of Excellence. After much thought he decided to leave the Camden City School District in 2016 to inspire educators around the country. Currently, he is a School Design Coach for Big Picture Learning. Brandon relishes in working with teachers and school leaders to think about teaching and learning differently. He is excited for opportunities to share the model and philosophy with educators across the country. Brandon loves to travel and spend time with his wife and partner Tanisha.
He is grateful for the opportunity to share his experiences to inspire others.
