For Tyler Ream, education has always been about achieving dreams. “Every student has the potential to do amazing things,” Ream says. “My job, and the job of everyone in education, is to help them realize that potential.”
A native of Los Angeles, Ream began his educational career in 2000 as a second-grade teacher in the Santa Ana (California) Unified School District. In 2001, he joined the Tustin Unified School District, also in California, where he taught fourth and fifth grades. In 2004, he was recognized as the district’s teacher of the year. Later that year, he became principal of Marjorie Veeh Elementary. In 2007, he joined CMS as chief of staff for the superintendent, and became area superintendent in the South Learning Community in 2009. In 2010, he was named to his current position as zone superintendent for the Central Elementary Zone.
Ream has also worked to help children by serving on community boards, including those of the Arts and Science Council, Alexander Youth Network, the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Foundation. He recently completed the Leadership Charlotte Program as a member of Class 30.
Ream graduated from Concordia University in Irvine, California, with a degree in liberal studies. He holds a master’s degree in urban school administration from Pepperdine and is completing his doctorate at the University of Southern California. He and his wife have two children.
