X-Factor EDU started in 2016 after Dr. Matthew X. Joseph finished his Ed.D in educational leadership from Boston College. He began his journey to supporting educators and districts. Experiences such as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Director of Digital Learning and Innovation, elementary school principal, classroom teacher, and district professional development specialist provided Matt with incredible insights on how to best support teaching and learning. These experiences led to nationally published articles and opportunities to speak at multiple state and national events. After writing Power of Us: Creating Collaborative Schools and co-author of Modern Mentor, Reimagining Mentorship in Education by Times 10 Publications, he met Brian Aspinall from Code Breaker Inc. Matt signed on as a Code Breaker Inc. author and began writing Power Of Connections: Connecting Educators, Cultivating Professional Learning Networks. After publication, he began organizing and facilitating national and international leader and educational meetups.
In the summer of 2021, Brian approached Matt to add a publishing arm to X-Factor EDU and be a publishing affiliate of Code Breaker Inc. In August 2021, X-Factor EDU publishing was launched.
