Devin Rossiter brings a unique perspective and passion to teaching. A former professional sports broadcaster, Devin parlays his journey into supporting educators through engaging communication theory, conceptual mathematical discourse strategies, and dynamic professional development.
A 2005 graduate of Northeastern University, Devin immersed himself in the Boston sports scene during a transformative era that included the genesis of the New England Patriots' dynasty and the Boston Red Sox' first World Series championship in 86 years. Rossiter served as a producer for SportsRadio 850 WEEI-AM and Sports Director for Northeastern's student radio WRBB-FM, where he provided play-by-play and color commentary for the Northeastern Huskies in football, basketball, baseball, and hockey.
Devin leveraged his passion for hockey at Northeastern into a childhood dream of working in the broadcast booth, securing a position straight out of college as the Director of Media Relations and Broadcasting for the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL. After his brief time with the Condors that included the franchise's first-ever playoff series victory, Rossiter transitioned into education: first teaching 6th grade at Voorhies Elementary, then supporting teachers as an instructional specialist for Bakersfield City School District before joining Walter Stiern Middle School as an Academic Coach, where he currently supports teachers on campus and across the globe.
Rossiter has collaborated with the NBA Developmental League, the US Australian Football League, and PBS Digital Media to develop experiential learning opportunities. He presents nationally on topics such as incorporating video into lessons, incorporating discourse structures, and exploring multiple strategies in the age of Common Core.
A member of the 2019 London cohort of the Google for Education Certified Innovator Academy, Devin advocates for better lighting for learning environments, mathematical discourse, and interest-based learning as a pillar of everyday equity and access.
Rossiter co-hosts the "Do The Math" program, visiting local businesses and schools to model deeper mathematical application and concepts. He continues to share his passion for math instruction and tech integration as a presenter at local and national conferences, and provides play-by-play commentary for Bakersfield's televised "Robot Rumble" middle school robotics competition.
