Bacchus Taylor: International Expeditions
Bacchus was born in a small hidden village in Northern California, protected by a rogue patrol that removed any sign that suggested such a place existed. He spent his early years there frolicking on the beach with the children of rock stars until his family decided it was time to move to the Seattle area and give the public school system a go. Bacchus tried about as many schools as he could, including four different institutions during his high school years. He earned a BA from the Evergreen State College and a Master’s in Teaching from Western Washington University while also becoming a Wilderness First Responder. His formal career in education began at Explorations Academy where he eventually taught every subject. During this time he was also one of the chief writers of accreditation documents describing the school’s atypical approach to education. In addition to working as a Core Faculty member, he also created and implemented the school’s gap year program, served as Head of School, and continues to lead International Expeditions.
