Brian Backman

Brian Backman grew up in Seattle, Washington. After high school, he served in the United States Army in Europe for three years. He then returned to Washington to attend Seattle Pacific University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in English and a master's in curriculum and instruction.

For the past 15 years, he has been on the faculty at Anacortes High School. He teaches English classes grades 9–12, including Advanced Placement English. He also coaches cross-country and is the faculty advisor for the Anacortes High School Key Club.

When not in the classroom, Backman enjoys strumming his guitar, playing basketball, and exploring the outdoors near his scenic home in Anacortes, Washington, a small town on Fidalgo Island, 85 miles northwest of Seattle. He also gains much inspiration from his wife, Joy, and two young sons, Sam and Max. Brian has an online blog which can be found at
