After graduating St. Rose as Valedictorian and a National Merit Scholar, Kevin attended Yale University and earned a B.A. magna cum laude in mathematics. During college, he sang in the Yale Glee Club and debated in the Political Union as a member of the Tory Party of Yale. Kevin then attended Harvard Law School and received a J.D. in 2000, serving as a member of the Harvard Defenders and the Journal of Law & Technology, and leading Scales of Justice, an a cappella singing group. His students are frequently (over)impressed by his strong mental computation skills and juggling ability.
“Mathematics is an art, much like music or painting. It is the art of ideas. In my class, students explore, experiment, and engage with these beautiful ideas. I allow the girls the intellectual freedom to create their own math everyday, to make decisions, and to explain their choices to their peers in a supportive learning environment. In this model, mistakes are quite valuable, because they lead to growth. Students thus develop ‘grit’ — perseverance in problem-solving — that continues to pay dividends long after high school.”
