About Bruce J. Stewart

The 2018-19 school year is Mr. Stewart’s third year as principal of Junipero Serra School, located at the historic Carmel Mission in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. Prior to serving the Junipero Serra School community, Mr. Stewart was principal at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School in Everett, Washington for five years.

Beginning in the summer of 2005, Mr. Stewart began a six year tenure at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School in Reno, Nevada, as the Assistant Principal of Academics. Mr. Stewart’s responsibilities included curriculum development, the recruitment and management of teachers, and ensuring all academic programs met the expectations and standards of college preparation.

Prior to joining the administrative staff of Bishop Manogue, Mr. Stewart taught English at Traner Middle School in Reno, NV. Mr. Stewart’s teaching methods engaged students in critical thinking and writing through the study of literature. Mr. Stewart’s experiences as a teacher, and the stories of many students who overcame the obstacles of poverty to achieve academic success, became the basis for his book 12 Keys for Engaging At-Risk Students.

Mr. Stewart studied English in college, earning a B.A. Degree from the University of Washington. He completed his teacher certification from Sierra Nevada College (Incline Village, NV); and earned a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Phoenix (Reno, NV). Prior to teaching English at Traner Middle School, Mr. Stewart enjoyed an 18 year career in the computer hardware and software industry.

Mr. Stewart is available for speaking engagements and professional development seminars. Professional development seminars include Effective Classroom Management and Discipline, Making Connections, and Lesson Planning and Student Assessment. All seminars emphasize the importance of understanding the culture and dynamics of teaching students from low socio-economic backgrounds, and the importance of a critical thinking approach to teaching and learning.

Bruce is married, lives in Pacific Grove, CA, and is the father of three sons.
