Kyle’s greatest passion as an educational leader is in watching happy students and teachers collaborate and grow in meaningful ways. At RAS that means leading innovative change year round that benefits our whole community and results in ever-increasing academic excellence. Above all else, he values relationships with teachers, students, and parents, and finds leading a school community one the most rewarding experiences of his life. Over the past decade, he has experienced and contributed to educational improvement in a variety of ways in Canada, the UK, the US, and Thailand. His experiences as a Classroom Teacher (G3-10), Discipline & Department Head, Accreditation Coordinator, Divisional Principal, and Head of School/Principal have lead to his belief in constant growth and progress, and that all students and teachers are capable of both.
Kyle’s primary goal at RAS is to lead lasting school improvement, and to develop a culture where the status quo is feeling good about the changes that take place because they ultimately propel our students and staff to overall excellence. Teachers remain indisputably the greatest resource in any school, so treating them well, building up their skills and confidence, and valuing their contributions and endless effort, are the greatest ways to ensure our children get the exceptional international educational experience they deserve. At the end of the day, success is marked by the number of students and teachers who not only learn and grow, but also think of RAS as a family.
