The 2016-17 school year is Mr. Stewart’s first year as principal of Junipero Serra School located at the historic Carmel Mission (Carmel, CA). Prior to joining Junipero Serra School, Mr. Stewart served the parish of St. Mary Magdalen in Everett, WA for five years as principal of the school. 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.


To make each day a unique and positive experience for every student, and to create a classroom environment in which every student feels a true sense of belonging. And, by connecting with each student through the philosophy that I will earn their respect by treating them with dignity, and that their voice as a student is valued and appreciated, I can then utilize a critical thinking approach emphasizing the Socratic Method to engage each and every student daily.
