Power Campus Assistant Principal

My Bio

Brandon Tauscher joins the San Tan Charter School family as Assistant Principal at the Power campus with a wide range of experience serving as a K-12 district athletics director, junior high and high school English teacher and varsity athletics coach, college instructor, non-profit executive and public relations official working within the NBA and NCAA athletics. Prior to joining San Tan, Brandon served as a K-12 athletic director at Salt River Schools, where his programs won 19 individual and team state championships in four years while keeping committed to academic accountability and fiscal responsibility.

Mr. Tauscher is married to his wife Lauren who works as a district administrator for the Phoenix Union High School District and they are the parents of four boys: Peter, Lewis, Andy and Henry. The family stays active participating in youth sports programs in the East Valley and finds time on occasion to enjoy the outdoors, travel and visiting family, and participating in USTA mixed-doubles tennis.

Raised in a small and supportive community in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Tauscher stays committed to his roots in education given his systems thinking philosophy and place-based approach to the work: “Actions affect each part of the system. Just as sound forest practices play out economically and socially within a family and community, when high standards for accountability in education meets the social-emotional needs of students, we find balance and can build something that lasts.”
