Daniel Wise

I teach 11th and 12th grade English at Prospect Hill Academy's Collegiate Institute. My two courses are Madness and Literature and AP Language and Composition.


At Fenway, I taught grades 9-11 Humanities. My course was based around the essential question "Who Built America?"

At Tufts, I collaborated with schools on project-based learning and interdisciplinary engineering education. I also helped to set up and run Nedlam's Workshop, a makerspace at Malden High School.

In addition to my work at Tufts, I was a Teaching Fellow at Harvard Graduate School of Education. I helped to plan and teach Jal Mehta's course "Deeper Learning For All: Designing a Twenty-First Century School System." 

Before I came to the Boston area, I taught 10th Grade Humanities at High Tech High, a project-based charter school in San Diego, California. At High Tech High, I collaborated with Jeff Robin, Julio Delgado, and Daisy Sharrock on projects such as Economics IllustratedCultural EncountersThe Paranoid Style, and Chemistry and Consequences. You can see student work from these projects and the processes that went into them on my projects page

Prior to coming to High Tech High, I taught English for five years in New York City- at M.S. 328 in Washington Heights and at Urban Action Academy in Brooklyn. At Urban Action Academy, I was a founding staff member and the school's Program Director.

I am a New York native, a Columbia College and Teach For America alumnus, and a rabid Mets fan. I live in Somerville, MA with my wife Laura Gee and our daughter Eleanor
