Teach For America South Carolina (TFASC) is pleased to welcome Brandon Johnson to its advisory board for a three-year term. As an alumnus of TFASC, he will provide strategic counsel and support to its evolving goals and expanding programs that will reach more students and communities in the future.
In 2014, Johnson was placed by TFASC to teach at Palmetto Middle School in the Marion County School District. In this role, he served as the math department chair, and his students had a 100 percent pass rate on the Algebra One End-of-Course Examination. From 2017 to 2020, Johnson was an assistant principal at McCracken Middle School in the Spartanburg School District Seven. Currently, he serves as an assistant principal at Eastside High School in the Greenville County School District.
Given his interest in public policy, Johnson founded We Are The Change SC, a nonprofit organization linking individuals to the necessary educational information and resources to close the achievement gap.
He received a bachelor’s degree in athletic training from the University of South Carolina and a master’s degree in educational leadership and administration from Coastal Carolina University.
With the addition of Johnson, 11 leaders serve on TFASC’s advisory board. For a complete list of TFASC’s advisory board members, visit tfasc.org/who-we-are/advisory-board.
TFASC works in partnership with schools and school districts, policymakers, and supporters to realize the day when every child has the opportunity to attain an excellent education in South Carolina. Founded in 2011, TFASC recruits and develops outstanding teachers who make an initial two-year commitment to teach in high-need schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to end educational inequity. Over the past decade, more than 700 TFASC teachers and alumni have impacted over 70,000 students with their energy and intentionality in the state’s most under-resourced schools and school districts. TFASC’s network is reimagining education to expand opportunity and access for all students. TFASC is one of more than 50 regions of Teach For America, which is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network.
