National Advisory Council member Craig Brandenburg is a media-production instructor at YES Prep North Central, in Houston. Brandenburg graduated from Miami University and joined Teach for America in 2001, working as a fifth-grade reading teacher at a Houston elementary school.

In his four years at YES Prep, he's taught math, science, and technology in grades 6-10. In 2004, he created a video-production class, out of which evolved iBlazer Studios, a small business where students produce videos for clients in their community and across the country. The students also run regular video-production workshops in which they teach the adults in their community how to shoot and edit their own video pieces.
