Bo Adams

Bo considers himself a learner, first and foremost. He believes in the shift from a focus on teaching to a focus on learning. Bo currently works at The Westminster Schools in Atlanta, GA. He began at Westminster in 1995 after teaching at two other independent schools. He earned an A.B. in Economics with concentrations in Marketing and Management from Duke University and an M.Ed. in Social Sciences and School Leadership from Emory University. Since 2003, Bo has been serving as the Junior High School Principal. At his various schools, Bo has facilitated student learning in courses such as math, economics, and history; he has coached a lot of running, too. Most recently, he launched an integrated, community-issues, PBL course named Synergy, which he co-facilitates with Jill Gough. In the 2006-07 school year, Bo assisted in the start up of the Center for Teaching at The Westminster Schools. His current, primary projects are “schools of the future and the future of schools,” faculty feedback and professional development (particularly professional learning communities), PBL, balanced assessment, and brain-based learning. He is a proud husband and father, and he enjoys running, biking, kayaking, reading, and playing.

He can be found on Twitter: @boadams1, and his personal/professional blog is called “It’s About Learning.”
