As an educator and an innovator who looks at the problems of business and society as challenges, I have ideas to help solve those problems. Positive about life, confident in my skills, and comfortable with technology, I see my experiences as tools to help me teach and communicate, but I also see our own humanity as our greatest asset. All of us, working together.
Using a creative, fresh approach to every challenge encountered, I am ready to work in the public or private sector with the skills developed while teaching and web building. With the ability to create new or enhance existing platforms for outreach, both in person and online, I can develop professional-quality websites, write the appropriate content, and train others to do the same.
Public sector. Private sector.
Twelve years of public school teaching with many more years of teaching and influencing online. All original.
Passive Ninja, Luthernet, and Brave New Church. Custom website creation.
All of the websites built by me are mobile-friendly and https secure. They are conceived and built in the matter of weeks rather than months. Some are my own business ideas, while others are for small businesses and churches.

As Department Chair, I have highly appreciated Brian's rich contributions to the English Department. He is an essential voice in our department's struggle to understand grammar rules and teach them effectively. I depend on Brian for a reasoned, expert opinion. He has a wide range of knowledge in our field and is a master of our resources.
He discovered unique ways to incorporate sites such as Youtube into his class before Youtube was a teaching tool. He knows what teachers need and want and is one of the best people I know to find and create these solutions. On top of it all, Brian so easy to work with; and his patience with less knowledgeable staff makes him an ideal person for a district resource.

Brian’s classes explore contemporary questions and interesting subjects while using varying resources to inspire discussion and writing. Brian is also well-practiced at sharing his innovative ideas with the department. Brian is also an expert with technology and has served as the go-to person in our department when it comes to learning about technology and using it more effectively in the English classroom
He is extremely intelligent and forward looking. He is not only good at delivering on expected outcomes, but also at anticipating future needs. He is as conscientious of a person as I have met. Mr. Jaeger is extremely hard working and efficient, a good combination in a fast paced world. Above all else, he is one of the most ethical people I know.
Brian has the mind-boggling ability to identify creativity in someone, help them build an interest where there might have been none, nurture their skills, and open the door to worlds they never would have bothered to seek out. He always seemed to gauge the skills of a student to teach them accordingly, always encouraging them to improve.
His direct approach and instant rapport reaches students who have a wide array of learning styles, varying beliefs, and socioeconomic backgrounds. In his instruction, Brian excels in not only applying the content as relevant information to the students’ academic year, but his teachings give the students a sense of immediate application in their thinking processes and day-to-day lives.
After eleven and-a-half years of schooling, Mr. Jaeger's 12th grade writing class was a breath of fresh air where I finally got the answer to the age-old question: what is all of this good for? It was much more comparable to classes I took at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater than anything I had ever taken in high school. It was closer to a job training than either one of those. It was, if I can make my point clear, something different.
