A native of New Hampshire, Jeff Bradley served as a CIE Commissioner from 2009-2015, chairing accreditation visits to a wide range of international schools. Since 2008 he has been a partner at Educators’ Collaborative, an executive search and consulting firm, assisting dozens of schools in the US and abroad with leadership recruiting and development, strategic planning, and governance.
From 2001-2007, Jeff and his family lived in Europe – first in Italy, where Jeff was founding Resident Director of School Year Abroad-Italy, and then in Switzerland. As Headmaster at TASIS-The American School in Switzerland, Jeff helped oversee creation of the school’s elementary and early childhood program. He and his wife have two children, ages 16 and 20.
Jeff’s international education experience began in high school when he spent three months as an exchange student in Rome. While a student at Georgetown University, he spent his junior year enrolled at the University of Bologna. Following graduation, Jeff served two years as Assistant to the Provost at Georgetown University and later as teacher, coach, English department head, and dean at the Bullis School in Maryland. He later worked at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, directing the Advanced Studies Program, an accelerated summer program for New Hampshire public high school students. At St. Paul’s, he also taught English, coached, and advised young teachers as Director of Apprentice Teaching Programs.
In 2012 Jeff co-founded OESIS – The Online Education Symposium for Independent Schools – a periodic gathering of K-12 teachers, administrators and other thought leaders aimed at sparking conversations and innovations to support best practices of teaching and learning in an increasingly globalized world. Ten different OESIS events have been held since 2013 in Boston, Los Angeles, London and Shanghai.
Jeff holds a BA in Philosophy and a Master’s degree in English Literature from Georgetown University.
