Brian Stoffel

For six years after graduating from Grinnell College, Brian Stoffel was a middle school teacher. Five of them were spent in inner-city Washington DC at a KIPP charter school that focused getting 100% of students accepted to college. In 2010, Brian and his wife took time off to move to Costa Rica and re-evaluate their life priorities. Six months later, having been an avid blogger on finance and stocks on the Motley Fool's discussion boards, Brian entered the Motley Fool's Writer Development Program. He has been writing for the Fool since 2010, and loves all-things-Wisconsin.
