From working with the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee to leading groundbreaking technology education initiatives for the U.S. Government, Richard Culatta has consistently championed innovation in education– but he started here as a BYU graduate.
Culatta’s career journey began as an advocate for education policy alongside the Washington Senator, Patty Murray. He left his mark by revamping the technology curriculum at BYU’s David O. McKay School of Education. Notably, his work with the Rose Education Foundation facilitated the introduction of internet connectivity to underserved Guatemalan schools.
His previous role as Director of the Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology marked a pivotal phase, driving nationwide initiatives to promote personalized learning and shape the future of technology-based learning nationwide.
His deep ties to Provo and focus on using technology when appropriate make him a perfect fit to provide guidance to our district on how to harness the power of technology in education.
Mark your calendars for October 5th and join us at the Nuskin Enterprise Offices while seats last. We’ll see you there!
