Johno Oberly

After earning a Master’s Degree in Global Finance and Trade from the University of Denver, Johno came to Dallas in 2013 as a Teach For America corps member. He was placed at Thomas Jefferson High School in North Dallas and invested heavily in the community for four years. He taught ESL Algebra 1 and then founded and directed the Patriot Ambassadors, a student leadership program. The highly focused work of that initiative is what led him to collaborate with Leadership ISD fellows and create the Student Voices program.
