Darron Evans began his career in education with Partners in School Innovation, an organization in the San Francisco Bay Area that partners with schools in low-income communities to improve student achievement. Unexpectedly, that experience led to a thirteen-year teaching career spanning five grades and three charter schools, giving Mr. Evans experience at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Most recently, Mr. Evans served as Assistant Principal at Alliance Marc & Eva Stern Math and Science High School. He is glad to be back at the middle school level where he feels the need for outstanding schools is greatest. Mr. Evans has a bachelor's degree in Public Policy and a master's degree in Sociology from Stanford University with a certificate in Charter School Leadership from Loyola Marymount University.
