Anthony Vitali grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, attending Catholic school throughout elementary, middle, and high-school. He then attended more Catholic school at the University of Portland to study biology. Soon, however, Mr. Vitali began to realize that teaching was his true calling. After he spent some time tutoring students at a nearby high-school, he understood that he felt more alive in those moments than working on anything else.
Mr. Vitali decided that teaching history would be his best combination to help create a more just society. While obtaining his history degree, he worked as a Campus Volunteer Coordinator, bringing University of Portland students into several Portland schools to help with no-cost tutoring, mentoring, and after-hours teaching. He also worked as a college-radio DJ and ran a show named “Lettuce Turnip The Beet” playing a mix of modern jazz on Wednesday evenings.
