Phillip Gedeon has over 17 years of experience in teaching, leadership, and instructional coaching that has positively influenced and reaffirmed his commitment to education reform in service of students, families and communities. He began his career as a high school math teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District. After receiving his Master and California Credential in school administration, he has served in various senior leadership roles within the charter community such as the Director of Mathematics, Chief Academic Officer, and most recently Chief of Schools.
As an educational leader, he brings an array of elements of high expectations, individualized attention and care to the development of the whole child. He is a champion for students of all backgrounds and a zealous advocate for special education, multilingual learners, high-quality and rigorous teaching, inclusivity, data driven practices, social-emotional learning and development, home-to-school partnerships, and trauma informed practices. He comes to CSCE with great joy, enthusiasm and commitment to the work. In his downtime, he enjoys spending time with family, friends and my year old French Bulldog Jon-Luc.
