While Ken grew up outside of New York, he has lived and worked throughout the country. After receiving his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Bucknell University, he joined Teach For America where he taught 8th grade math in Phoenix for two years. He continued teaching math at STRIVE Preparatory Schools in Denver, Colorado. He served in various roles with STRIVE over the course of six years, including as founding principal of a new middle school campus. Ken loves science, jazz, anything in the mountains, and spending time with his family and dog, Rio. He is super excited to be a part of the KIPP San Diego team and San Diego community!
