Colin is driven by a deep commitment to others, and an unyielding longing for the world to be a better place. Growing up in Cairo, Egypt, Colin finds home amid change and transition. Prior to working at Summer Search, Colin was a high school English teacher, a corps member for Teach for America, and a founding faculty member of Arise Academy Charter High School. Colin’s formal education is a BA from Wheaton College and a MS in Education from the University of Pennsylvania, but he loves learning and experiencing the richness of life wherever he can. Often this means spending time in the woods, on the side of a cliff, enjoying a meal with good friends, or perhaps in transit to a new place. He and his wife love their church and community in West Philadelphia.
