Josh Ecker

It is great to meet you! My name is Josh Ecker, and I am the Director of Education here at Center School. 
 
I wanted to share a little about myself. I graduated from Ursinus College with a B.A. in dual majors of English Literature and American Studies. After that, I went to Villanova University to get my M.A. in Education and become certified as a 7th-12th grade teacher in the areas of English and Social Studies. I started as a high school English teacher in Philadelphia and then transitioned to a smaller district, where I taught middle school reading, writing, social studies, and served as the school’s gifted program coordinator.
 
During my time as a teacher, I began my Doctor of Education program at Johns Hopkins University. I finished that program in August of 2022 and have enjoyed applying the knowledge and skills I developed throughout that program here at Center School. My favorite part about being the Director of Education is having the opportunity to work with a team of skilled, enthusiastic teachers and administrators who want to make school engaging and effective for all students.
 
Outside of school, I enjoy cooking, reading, watching new movies and tv shows, and spending time with family and friends. 
 
I look forward to seeing you and your family at school events. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at school at 267.609.0717 or via email [email protected]
