George Rislov

George Rislov is Senior Marketing Manager at Compass Learning, working primarily in the area of partner marketing. He has been at CompassLearning since July of 2007. As a former social studies teacher and education policy maker, he believes in providing students the tools they need to be independent and critical thinkers in a rapidly changing world. He holds a BA in History for the University of Texas-Dallas and a MEd in Secondary Education from the University of North Texas, with a specialization in Gifted Child Education. His early interest in history led to repeated readings of the classic world history textbook, Modern History, by Carl L. Becker, beginning when he was eleven years old. He went on to teach World History for twelve years. George lives in Austin and is owned by two totally spoiled Boston terriers, Zac and Django.
