Your Host, Our CEO

Kevin began his career over 20 years ago as a Texas high school football coach with a stereotypical, no-nonsense, ‘Get off my field!’ attitude. Eventually, Kevin served as an assistant principal of the school which subsequently, soon held the district-wide record for suspensions. This record was a  crossroad for Kevin and pointed him in the direction of his true calling: finding alternative disciplinary and preventative practices; otherwise known as restorative practices. Now, Kevin lives and breathes to make radical changes within the education system through relationship-centered learning (RCL). He is passionate about this new movement and strives to bring a sense of community to the educators that need it.
