A little bit about me...

I currently teach IB Economics and Theory of Knowledge in Santiago, Chile. I have also served as IB Extended Essay Coordinator for the past four years.  I have 19 years of classroom experience, nine of which have been teaching both High Level and Standard Level IB Economics.  

Prior to moving to Chile in 2012, I spent four years at the American School of Nicaragua.  Three of those years I taught high school history, one of them I spent as High School Principal.  I began my teaching career in 2002 at the Atlanta Girls’ School in the United States. Prior to teaching, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the central mountains of the Dominican Republic. I am a graduate of Duke University where I studied Public Policy Studies and History.  

Teaching IB Economics has been the most rewarding experience of my nineteen-year career and I would love to share a bit of what I've learned along the way.  Please don't hesitate to send me an email to brad@bradcartwright.com if you have any questions.

Wishing you all the best out there.  

Stay safe and healthy!
