Regional Sales Director
Fred Bridges

Fred is an educational thought leader with a mission to bridge the resource gap and bring opportunity to our most at-risk populations. Fred is also a K-12 business leader passionate about building high performance sales teams.

Fred began his career as a middle school reading and earth science teacher and coach in Dekalb County, Georgia focused on supporting the most reluctant learners in his classes. Fred deployed technology-based, textbook-free lessons to enhance digital literacy amongst his students and promote more equitable access to education. During the summers, Fred partnered with a local nonprofit, the Reach Them to Teach Them Foundation, which continued to offer the students access to a digital learning environment through activities including virtual field trips and virtual meet-and-greets with authors across the country. Fred’s time in Dekalb County helped mold him into the passionate K-12 leader he is today. 

After teaching, Fred left for the Northeast and began his journey in the edtech space with McGraw-Hill Education’s SRA Division focusing on intervention solutions in some of the country’s largest urban districts. Fred has also had the opportunity to lead sales teams for several major K-12 hardware and software companies while building a unique pedigree focused on 21st Century learning. Fred earned his bachelor’s of Science in Middle Grades Education from Georgia Southern University. He lives in Stone Mountain, GA where he enjoys attending classic car shows, going to concerts, and BBQing! He is married to Stephanie and they have two children, Fred II (22) and Destiny (20).
