My favorite childhood book that I read over (and over and over and over) was: James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
My hope for Oakland students is: I hope that all Oakland students can participate in a variety of different education experiences so they can find what gives them joy. Additionally, I hope that all Oakland students can be exposed to the diversity of our great city so they can celebrate our shared experiences and differences.
Jonathon joined the Rogers Family Foundation in May 2018. He leads the Oakland CORE Charter Collaborative, a growing group of charter schools within Oakland that participate in the CORE Data Collaborative to share data and discuss problems of practice with other educators across the State of California.
Prior to joining the Foundation, Jonathon spent the last decade working in data-focused roles with Oakland Unified, Aspire Public Schools, Education for Change, and Summit Public Schools. In these roles, he has supported teachers, school leaders, and organization leaders in identifying key data points, creating dashboards to track progress on key data points, and helping stakeholders take action based on data. Jonathon began his career in education in 2005 as a high-school math teacher in Oakland Unified. Jonathon graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Math and later earned a Master of Public Policy from the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Jonathon lives in Oakland with his wife, Jessica, and two adorable children, Brooklyn and Cameron.
