Deepti Reim

National Faculty

Deepti is a high school educator with nearly a decade of experience in Project Based Learning and curriculum design. She currently serves as an instructional coach for Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers in Tacoma Public Schools in Tacoma, WA. She believes Project Based Learning can help all students engage deeply in their learning so that they can be prepared for whatever they choose to do next.

Previously, she served as the Marketing Pathway Coordinator at Da Vinci Communications High School in El Segundo, CA, where she taught fully project-based courses in CTE Marketing and English/Language Arts. As a facilitator with the Da Vinci Institute, she led workshops for educators on building school-industry partnerships and helping students develop project management skills. Deepti has also authored PBL lesson sequences for California Educators Together.

Before her teaching career, Deepti worked in corporate and nonprofit communications, where she implemented strategic communications strategies with a Los Angeles-based public relations firm, shared stories of human trafficking survivors with International Justice Mission, and mentored students to advocate for children’s rights with Human Rights Watch. Her experience informs her passion for creating authentic, real-world learning experiences for students.

Deepti holds a B.A in Global Studies and French from UCLA (Go Bruins!) and an M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from CSU Sacramento. When she’s not in the classroom, you can find her exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, daughter, and goldendoodle, or curled up with a good book.
