Kurtis Martin's METCO journey began in the second grade in the Wayland Public Schools system where he graduated from Wayland High School in 2003. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from University of Massachusetts Boston and has served as METCO Director for the Reading Public Schools since July 2021. Kurtis found his love for becoming an educator through coaching basketball when he became the boys’ varsity basketball coach for Brighton High School in November 2009. Prior to becoming METCO Director in Reading, Kurtis was the Dean of Students for Brighton High School. His tenure in the Boston Public Schools includes serving as Dean of Students at Madison Park Technical/Vocational High School, along with working at the Murphy school in Dorchester and the Curtis Guild Elementary School in East Boston. After winning multiple state championships at Brighton High School and sending dozens of kids off to play college basketball, Kurtis stepped down as boys basketball coach in September of 2022 to focus on ensuring that students in Reading Public Schools had an even better experience than he and his classmates once had in Wayland.
