Michael Carbone

Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Brilla Schools Network

Michael C. Carbone is the director of curriculum and instruction for the Brilla Schools Network.  In this role, Michael hopes to cultivate and evolve a focused definition of student achievement across the network and help students, teachers, and the community achieve excellence beyond imagination. Prior to joining the Seton Education Partners team, Michael was involved in the school turnaround process in Connecticut, providing leadership to both urban, traditional neighborhood and public charter schools. Michael's passion lies in empowering students and teachers to push the boundaries of traditional schooling and to bring innovation and research-based best practices to underserved students and communities.  He is especially excited to be a member of Seton Education Partners during its growth phase. Scholars and teachers in both of Michael's previous schools made exceptional academic, social, and operational gains—maximizing efficiencies, leveraging collective genius, and relentlessly focusing on student-driven outcomes. Previously, Michael served on the Connecticut ASCD Board of Directors, as the president of Kappa Delta Pi at the University of Saint Joseph, as the host of the Science and Engineering Program for Teachers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and as an adjunct professor and course designer in graduate education and educational leadership.  He graduated from the University of Saint Joseph with a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction and now resides with his wife and dog in New York, New York, where he enjoys reading, golfing, and writing.
