About Josh McLaurin

Josh McLaurin comes to Tomorrow’s Genius with a long list of impressive credentials. He will soon defend his dissertation for an Ed.D. in educational leadership – he already holds both an M.Ed. and Ed.S. in that subject, as well as a BA in Sociology. He is a National Board Certified teacher, and is licensed in North Carolina to be a health and physical education teacher, a school administrator, and a superintendent. He was “Principal of the Year” in his school district in 2015-16 and was chosen to be the keynote speaker at a recent conference for school principals.

Mr. McLaurin has also been trained by the College Board to teach AP courses, and to teach for the ACT exam. His areas of teaching expertise include English language arts, math, science, and social studies in middle schools; Algebra I, biology, and SAT/ACT preparation in high schools; and health and physical education (he coached two state championship Olympic weightlifting teams and several athletes at the Collegiate Nationals on ESPN2).

“I believe the student, teacher, parents, and all stakeholders are part of the team to help the student be successful,” he says. “Education is finding ways to link knowledge that the student might not understand to something they do understand . . . The drive to be successful, and realize that teachers are successful only when their students are successful, is at the heart of the work. Working with students and teachers to be successful brings joy and excitement to my life.”
