Brett Taylor

“The Phillip J. Patiño School of Entrepreneurship”

With Brett Taylor

Recognizing that the one-size fits all approach to education does not result in college and career readiness for all, Brett has found a passion in designing an innovative entrepreneurial learning organization that involves students in the work of the real world. Brett is currently founding principal of the Patiño School of Entrepreneurship, actualizing a vision in which everystudent learns how to learn for a lifetime.

When I was approached with the opportunity to start a new school, I was extremely excited.  But I had no idea how large the project would be or how much I didn’t know.  No training or previous work experience had prepared me to deal with all of the areas that this project entailed.  Project management helped me to organize my learning, leverage my resources, navigate a large school district, and balance time between staffing, designing a facility, creating an innovative program, and recruiting students.  Ultimately, project management helped me accomplish more than I ever thought was possible in 10 months.  

In his previous role as an instructional leader, Brett has redesigned a high school’s career pathways into a focused academy system at Duncan Polytechnical High School, and created and trained district administrators and teachers in technology systems that supported data presentation, collaborative communication, and teacher accountability as a Learning Director in the Hanford Elementary School District. Brett grew up in Las Vegas, NV, has degrees from Brigham Young University, UC Davis, and the University of the Pacific, and lives with his wife Kelly and four children in Clovis, CA.
