Following a Quaker high school education, Brooks earned a degree in mathematics at Carleton College. After working abroad at the Universidad Anáhuac México Sur International Business School, he earned an AMI Elementary Diploma and master’s degree in Montessori education from Loyola University in Maryland, and began the Upper Elementary program at St. Croix Montessori School in Stillwater, Minnesota, where he went on to serve as Director of Academics and Admissions. Brooks then began his 14-year tenure at Lake County Montessori School in Minneapolis as the middle school math teacher and assistant principal. Brooks was especially passionate about supporting the school’s Junior High program and its 160-acre working farm campus in Wisconsin, the Land School.
In his free time, Brooks enjoys listening to and performing music, art, travel, and spending time with family.
