Jared Sliger

Jared Sliger (he/him) is a 32-year veteran educator with an emphasis in middle school mathematics. He has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Northwest Nazarene University, and also coached collegiate volleyball for 12 years. Jared has spent the last several years teaching his own students using the Building Thinking Classrooms approach, witnessing the power of the fourteen practices in his own classroom and working to perfect his implementation. He has seen first-hand the impact of getting students out of their seats, working collaboratively at whiteboards, increasing knowledge mobility and student responsibility, and watching engagement and thinking skyrocket among his students. He is excited to share the Building Thinking Classrooms model with more teachers to help them transform their classrooms into thinking ones.
