Ambition: The end of public/government-controlled education. Favorite Quotes: "The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see." -Ayn Rand "Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent.

Ambition: The end of public/government-controlled education. Favorite Quotes: "The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see." -Ayn Rand "Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction." -Albert Einstein Professional Bio: Brett Veinotte has worked in private education for the last ten years, in a variety of capacities. While still in college, Brett began working at a Southern Vermont boarding school as a residential counselor. After receiving his B.S.

in 2000, he sought greater involvement in the school's education programs. He soon became an Outdoor Education Leader, where he initiated adventure and team-building programs for previously campus-restricted students with behavioral and emotional challenges. He also coached soccer, basketball and softball. In 2002 he was promoted to Lead Teacher for one of the school's satellite locations.

Along with the program's lead clinician, he led a successful restructuring of campus clinical and educational program goals, implementing a new curriculum, a less restrictive residential setting, a full outdoor education program, campus job opportunities and additional enrichment activities. He authored and implemented the Sim-ciety life skills curriculum, focused on personal responsibility, community involvement, micro-economics and 21st century job skills. In an effort to enhance this career-oriented curriculum, he developed and managed the school's first newspaper, employing his students as writers, photographers and editors. From 2004 to 2006, Brett taught History and Mathematics at the Great Expectations school in Manchester, VT. He designed new curricula for all classes he taught, including American History, World History, Media Ethics, Film History and a variety of mathematics courses.

While teaching at Great Expectations, he completed masters level coursework in educational leadership, and the secondary education certification program at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. After leaving Great Expectations in 2006, Brett began to work exclusively as a private tutor in the greater Boston area. Much of this work was related to standardized test prep (SAT, ACT, SSAT, SAT II, ISEE), but also included providing essay writing support to college applicants, leading training sessions for prospective teachers planning to take state certification exams, and serving as a liaison between parents and public schools, to address student needs and parent concerns. He also worked as writing consultant to a London School of Economics graduate student, advising on foreign policy issues and Austrian School Economics. He is currently the Vice President of a tutoring and educational consulting company in New Hampshire.
