Mr. Thacker attended College of William & Mary, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude in economics and philosophy. As a recipient of the Congress-Bundestag (2003) and Transatlantic (2007) Scholarships, he has lived, studied, and worked extensively in Germany.
“I chose BASIS Independent for its advanced curriculum, wonderful students, and outstanding faculty. The creative challenge of presenting economics to my students never ceases to engage. The opportunity to support my fourth graders in their academic growth as incredible little human beings is one that I treasure,” says Mr. Thacker.
Outside of class, he is a musician (guitar, vocals), soccer player, avid reader, traveler, and outdoorsman. Mr. Thacker also speaks German and Portuguese and believes strongly in the value of cultural exchange.
