Mr. Brodie is a born and raised Arizonan. As a young student, he was not very fond of the classroom but once he matured and understood the value and opportunities that come along with an education, he attained a Masters Degree in Social Work from Arizona State. Like a social worker, Mr. Brodie believes in each individual, strives to understand personal complexities and community intersections, and supports each person to be their best. Mr. Brodie has worked extensively with teenage students, within the classroom and outside of it, in hopes to inspire them to complete their educational goals. He was also a Big Brother for 5 years and equates much of his progress to that experience and joy.
Outside of the classroom, Mr. Brodie enjoys being on a trail and atop mountain peaks. Also an avid Ultimate Frisbee player, he competes year-round in tournaments throughout the United States.
