Todd Stanley

I have been in education for 19 years in a myriad of positions. I began as a junior high Social Studies teacher in a magnet high achieving program called Horizons. Then I taught high school students at the Christopher Program (now known as Mosaic) which was a humanities program that used project-based learning and pulled junior and seniors from all over Franklin County. After that I created an elementary gifted pull-out called the Ivy Program. I moved to teach middle school Social Studies and Science on a gifted team called Quest. I had the pleasure of helping to create a gifted magnet program from 5-8 graders called Gateway Gifted Academy which I taught on for four years as well as served as the district gifted coordinator in Reynoldsburg. I am currently serving as the gifted coordinator at Pickerington Local School District.


I spent my undergraduate time at Bowling Green State University where I majored in creative writing and history. I did my graduate work at the Ohio State University where I received my degree in Secondary Social Studies education. I have returned to OSU to get certification in gifted education as well as my administrator licensure.
