Teaching At BL:
Mr. Osborn's approach to teaching is simple; "Keep the energy high, the pace fast, and above all, keep it fun."

He believes that the study of history allows one to fully understand the 'how' and 'why' of current events and that the lessons of the past must inform our decisions about the future. Through teaching, he feels he has the opportunity to positively impact young men who will one day be in positions to make bold decisions and do great things.

One of the reasons that Mr. Osborn loves to teach at BL is the community of families, administrators, colleagues and students who are so supportive of each other."The close-knit nature of our community is special and it makes me very proud to be able to be a part of it."

What's More:
Mr. Osborn lives with his wife, who is a cyber security expert for Unit 42 of Palo Alto Networks, and their three dogs and two cats. He is a big fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, Manchester United, Dungeons & Dragons and, if he was not teaching at BL, he would be "the play-by-play announcer for the Kansas City Chiefs."
