C. Ross Flatt

6th Grade Social Studies Teacher & Curriculum Developer, New York City

I have been in education for the past ten years. Before coming to my current school, Quest to Learn, I taught US History, World History, Global Studies, & Sociology at parochial and public schools in New York and New Jersey. In 2009, I joined the founding team of Quest to Learn, a school that focuses on game-like learning and systems thinking. Since that time, I have worked as a 6th grade Humanities teacher for a class called Being, Space, & Place (BSP). Most recently, I have stepped into the role of Lead Teacher and Curriculum Developer and work with teachers and game designers on Quest to Learn curriculums for middle and high school.
