Introducing Families to the ILC
Introducing Families to the ILCtitle
Jeff Brien began teaching at the ILC in 2002 after graduating from UC Davis with a degree in Economics. He left the United States to teach English in Beijing, China in 2008, but the impending arrival of his first child brought him back to Northern California in the summer of 2010. After teaching one year of middle school in the Davis school district, Jeff returned to the ILC in 2011.
Jeff is the Enrollment Coordinator for the ILC. When students express an interest in joining the ILC, he helps them determine, along with their parents and high school counselor, if the ILC is a good fit for their goals, needs and skills.
Jeff enjoys teaching the historical context behind modern events, appreciation for world cultures, and the skills needed for a successful life. Along with his wife, he gets to practice these academic interests on his three sons. Jeff is also fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
