Kaleb Rashad is the Director of Creative Leadership at the High Tech High Graduate School of Education. Over the past 10 years, Kaleb has worked with diverse communities to co-create equity-driven, liberatory school cultures–characterized by student-centered pedagogy, trust-rich relationships, and creative leadership practices. Kaleb has served as the director (of doing badass work) at the Gary and Jerri-Ann Jacobs High Tech High.

Before High Tech High, Kaleb taught middle school math and science and he served as the site administrator in two middle schools and two elementary schools. Prior to education, he served in the US Marines at Camp Pendleton (CA).

He holds a BA in Human Development, two Master’s Degrees, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership focusing on relational trust and organizational change. Kaleb currently supports individual schools, districts, and networks nationally and internationally experimenting at the intersection of leadership, equity, and design. He also works alongside the disruptors of inequity at Stanford’s K12 Lab, IDEO’s Teacher’s Guild, School Retool, & Leadership + Design.

When not spreading creative swagger, Kaleb enjoys hiking, camping, and surfing with his two boys, live blues and jazz, great eats and lively conversation. You can reach him at krashad@hightechigh.org or on Twitter at @kalebrashad.
