Meet the Teachers and Staff

Brandon Rhodes

I have been teaching with Career Prep now fro going on two years. I was excited to be offered a position at Career Prep North Akron as the Social Studies Teacher. I love the new direction that Career Prep is headed with the career pathways because of where I have come from with my past jobs. Out of high school I started out by working for a roofing company for about one year.
