In his farewell speech to the nation, President Reagan cited the need for an informed patriotism. “Since the founding of this Nation, education and democracy have gone hand in hand,” he said. As Chief Learning Officer, Tony works with an amazing team of educators to help cultivate the next generation of citizen-leaders. Each year, the Reagan Foundation works with more than 40,000 students and 2,000 teachers through field trips, programs, retreats, summer camps, internships, scholarships, and university credit. In short, we do all we can to help create the sort of country we’d like to live in. In addition to his role at the Reagan Foundation, Tony was the 2012 recipient of the Civic Action Award from the California Council for the Social Studies, served on the Advisory Board for California’s K-12 Civic Learning Task Force, and currently serves at the Chair of the Education Committee for the American Alliance of Museums, and Vice-Chair of the Awards Committee for the National Council for the Social Studies.
Prior to starting at the Foundation, Tony taught middle school English and History for 10 years, and was a Teacher Consultant and Tech Liaison for the Cal State Northridge Writing Project.
Anthony earned his B.A. from Claremont McKenna College, his M.A. from the University of Hawaii, and is a very proud father to his three kids: Lia, Makaina, and Xander.
