Dr. Jared  Myracle

Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

Students are most successful when their teachers and school leaders have access to high-quality resources and thoughtful support. I am excited about the work NIET leads to provide students, teachers, and leaders with the resources and support necessary to radically improve student achievement. I am honored to be a part of NIET and this team of great educators who are committed to making a difference in the lives of students across the country.

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

My favorite subject in school was American history. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to pursue it as my undergraduate degree so that I could teach it. I like studying American history because our country's past is full of complicated and interesting events that have impacted so much of the world we see around us. I think studying history is a great way to understand the present.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I like to spend as much time as possible outdoors. I like to golf, hike, and explore the surrounding farmland in my Jeep. Recently, my wife and I have started visiting national parks. Our recent favorites are Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, and Rocky Mountain National Park.
