First and foremost, Vincent Day is a learner—a thoughtful educator seeking to encourage students and faculty to explore their educational passions. Dating back to the summer of 2000, Vincent began his career as a technology support specialist at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia. Over the course of the past fifteen years he has served a variety of roles at SCH including Director of Digital Tools, Director of Technology Engagement & Professional Development Coordinator, and Program Director for Computer Science and Interactive Technologies. Vincent’s career trajectory shifted in 2010 when he had the opportunity to teach a Game Design course to a small group of high school students.
