About VulpinED

VulpinED arose from Benjamin Brigham’s desire to pursue his passion for the innovative and effective use of educational technology to provide an outstanding, future-ready education for all students.  Currently offering professional development and online presence services, VulpinED will be engaging in a number of special projects and new initiatives in the near future.

About Our Founder, Benjamin Brigham

During his sixteen years in the field of education, Benjamin Brigham has received numerous awards for his innovative, engaging and technology-rich educational practice. Ben’s passion for helping others develop the skills required to achieve their personal and professional goals and contribute positively to their communities has guided his career and lead to the founding of VulpinED during the summer of 2017.

Ben, known online as misterbrigham, has been living and teaching in Maine since 2009. During his time in Maine, he has been recognized as a 2017 PBS Digital Innovator, a semifinalist for the 2016 Maine Teacher of the Year, and the 2015 Washington County Teacher of the Year. He earned these accolades for his innovative work at Shead High School, America’s easternmost high school, located in rural, economically-disadvantaged Eastport. His work with educational technology there included managing the school’s 1:1 computer program, teaching a course on the role of video games in our culture, and working with a team that was named finalists for the XQ Super School Project.

In addition to his work inside the school building, Mr. Brigham is an ardent supporter of and participant in several statewide educational initiatives and advocate for the needs of disadvantaged students. He has participated in and volunteered for Teach to Lead Maine, ECET2 Maine, the Maine State Teacher of the Year program, and Educate Maine. He has repeatedly written about and testified in support of policies addressing the needs of disadvantaged students and their teachers.

Prior to his work in Maine, Mr. Brigham taught English and Language Arts in California, Massachusetts, and Florida. He is a 1999 graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, where he was a member of the first class of the College of Education’s Professional Development School and a member of the prestigious Schreyer Honors Program.

His future aspirations include continuing to work and grow as an educator, teacher leader, and innovator, earning a Master’s Degree in Learning, Design, and Technology, and enjoying time with his amazing wife, Yarrow, and cunning son, Fox, whose love and support inspire his work.
