Meet the Staff: Mr. Wood, Director of Operations

Robert Wood Staff PhotoWe are so excited to announce the Director of Operations, Mr. Robert Wood, for our new Lower School Campus for the 2022 - 2023 school year. 

Mr. Wood joins us from the Silicon Valley Upper School where he was a Subject Expert Teacher in Economics and Logic. He has a decade of experience working in private schools across the Bay Area. 

Our Head of School, Ms. Brooklynn Titus, sat down with Mr. Wood to ask all the questions that we know our new families are excited to have answered!

 

Mr. Wood, though our Upper School families know you well, please provide us with a quick introduction to our new families at the Lower School.

While I moved around California a lot as a kid, I have lived in the South Bay for the last twenty years. While attending San Jose State pursuing a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in finance, I worked at another local private school. That is where I fell in love with education and opted to pursue a career in education over finance.

Over the course of the last decade, I have worked with and taught virtually every grade level! I look forward to combining my classroom experience and finance background to ensure the school year goes smoothly. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, camping, and walks with my wife and my dog Mishka.
