Charles Willis, M.Ed., NBCT

In the seven years that Charles Willis has been teaching students about United States history and the history of Boston and Revere at Revere High School (RHS), he has completely redesigned his classroom to put students at the center and prepare them for success long after graduation.

As a member of the School Redesign and Innovation team at RHS Charles is also working to further student-centered learning on a systematic level. Charles has presented at the New England Secondary School Consortium conference, the National Association of Secondary School Principals conference and both the New England Regional and National College Board Forums. Charles, a National Board Certified Teacher, has a Master’s of Education in Social Studies Education and a B.S. in Social Studies Education from Boston University.
