Jeff Petty

Jeff started working as a mountaineering instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). He held teaching internships in Connecticut and California until he pursued his masters degree in Boston. When he moved back to Seattle, he taught at Nova HS in Seattle.  For the past several years Jeff has been the northwest regional director for Big Picture Learning, working with districts and school leaders to start new Big Picture schools. Jeff has a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Princeton, and a Masters of Education from Harvard. His biggest professional accomplishment is starting the Big Picture school at Highline and helping to connect students to internships or other opportunities that help them move into a future they’re excited to pursue.  In his downtime he plays a lot of ultimate frisbee, including a summer league team called Disctopian Future.
