Director of Education Grant Partnerships

Tony Moten

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
– Toni Morrison

As the son of an army veteran, Tony Moten Jr. spent his childhood moving, beginning in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he was born, to Washington, Colorado, Missouri, Germany and South Carolina, where he finished high school. During a nomadic childhood, he learned systemic oppression and educational inequity was not confined to one region of the world. He fundamentally believes that in order to eradicate educational inequity we must look at all sectors of the system.

Mr. Moten started his education career in South Carolina at Northwestern High School before joining Teach For America as a corps member in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, where he taught middle school Algebra I, eighth grade mathematics and seventh grade accelerated mathematics. Following his classroom experience, he joined the organization’s regional staff, where he served as manager and later director of teacher leadership development. As a director for Teach for America, Mr. Moten was responsible for setting vision and strategy and assisting in the cultivation of future leaders.

Mr. Moten earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from Winthrop University and his Masters of Education in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington. He is a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated, an advocate for social justice and a travel enthusiast.
