James began his career over 25 years ago and has since served as a teacher and administrator at public and private schools around the world while also serving in advocacy roles for a variety of organizations. He has worked with Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Cambridge/IGSCE, ACTFL, and Central European Framework Reference (CEFR) programs. One of James’ main focuses over the course of his career has been reforming assessment in education.
