Josh Stamper

Josh Stamper

With an economic crash and professional uncertainty, Joshua went from using his creativity as a graphic designer to inspiring students to use their imagination as an art teacher. Being unsuccessful as a student growing up, Joshua never thought he would be back in the classroom as a teacher or an administrator. The struggles as a student spawned a passion and desire to change the education model and push the boundaries of traditional learning.  

Joshua has had the great pleasure of working as a middle school Assistant Principal for a North Texas School District for the past eight years, where he's been able to serve at four campuses and in two school districts. Before entering into administration, Joshua was a classroom Art educator and athletic coach for six years working with students in grades six through eight.

In addition to his administrative position, Joshua is a podcaster, author, education presenter, and Podcast Network Manager for the Teach Better Team.
