Jason Filie

Training Specialist

After more than 20 years in the classroom, Jason now provides fellow educators with the encouragement, resources, and support needed to transform their classrooms and help their students find how they can create value in the real world. He is a firm believer in giving teachers ample space to be innovative and passionate, first becoming the best version of themselves before giving back to their students. As an empathetic and relationship-driven person, “Passion” most resonates with Jason because he finds fulfillment in connecting with others and helping them connect to what they need for success. 

Jason currently lives outside of his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, where he taught after graduating from Michigan State University. Being a father to three amazing sons brings excitement and joy to Jason’s life daily. His sons inspire him to be a lifelong learner, even if it’s just a tiny step each day.
