Shaun began his academic life as a science geek, earning his BPhil degrees in Microbiology and Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh Honors College. Since then, he has evolved into an education geek, currently completing his PhD in Administrative and Policy Studies and his Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility… Still at Pitt.
Professionally, Shaun has served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, where he taught courses in Physiology, Pathology, and Research Methodology. Having recently transitioned from Northgate School District as Director of Curriculum and Assessment, Shaun is excited to join the Fighting Highlanders as Principal of Baldwin High School. Prior to Northgate, he founded the K-12 STEAM Program at Pittsburgh Public Schools. Shaun’s work has been recognized by many local media outlets, in William Gormley’s new book The Critical Advantage: Developing Critical Thinking Skills in Schools, by Edutopia, and by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. In all that he does, Shaun strives to expand students’ access to culturally-responsive, cross-curricular, and project-based learning opportunities.
