Tyler Tomita graduated from the University of Oregon in 2014, where he studied Sociology and Journalism, with a Minor in Psychology. While at the University of Oregon., he experienced the effects of diversity and inclusion within the educational realm, which piqued his interest in understanding individualized, culturally sensitive education. Shortly after graduating, he attended Chapman University, earning a Masters in Teaching with an emphasis on 21st-century literacies.
As a result of his educational experience, Tyler believes that the key to learning is generating accessible content for all through the exploration of new ideas and inquisitive practices. Through inquiry and experience, the learning process becomes immediately applicable and accessible to all.
When he is not inside the classroom, Tyler can often be found cooking up a new nutritious menu or focusing his mind on the football field or basketball court. His firm belief in the statement, "Mens sana in corpore sano" by the Greek philosopher Thales has guided him to believe in a holistic education, which values not only the mind but the body and spirit as well.
