- A Collegial Partnership -

Are you new to teaching IB Economics this year?  Or maybe you’re looking for someone to meet with on a regular basis to get new ideas on lesson plans, or new writing strategies for students, or maybe just another perspective on your teaching?  If so, I would love to work with you to help expand your craft of teaching.  


This one-on-one program can be set up to meet your individual needs and time constraints.  The idea is that we partner up around your needs as a teacher moving through the curriculum.  We would meet one-on-one eight different times throughout the semester via Zoom to collaborate with one another.


After 20 years in the classroom, I remember sharply those key people along the way that provided me with little golden nuggets that transformed a lesson, a unit, or even altered my view on teaching.  I would love to share what I’ve learned from experience, from mistakes made, and from working with thousands of kids over the years.

I would love to help you, especially if you are starting your journey through IB Economics for the first time.  To get started, all you need to do is schedule a free meeting initial meeting. 

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

A little bit about me...

I currently teach IB Economics and Theory of Knowledge in Santiago, Chile. I have also served as the IB Extended Essay Coordinator.  I have 20 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 twenty-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!
