Kevin is a principal at Katherine Smith, a New Tech Network elementary school in San Jose, CA. He is part of a dedicated team who have reinvented a high poverty, underserved urban school community into a wall-to-wall PBL school that strives towards deeper learning outcomes. As a teacher, instructional coach, and now a school leader, Kevin works with his team to support authentic, real-world projects that engage students through inquiry and push them to think critically about new and innovative ways to apply their learning. Kevin believes that all students should be prepared to think, learn, work, communicate, and collaborate effectively. He is passionate about PBL as a means for school transformation and ensuring students can meaningfully contribute to a constantly evolving, 21st century world.
