Jitesh will teach MYP Design and Science this school year. He brings with him 11 years of experience as a fisheries biologist on the Oregon coast where he led the research of salmonid population dynamics and harvest rates to ensure a sustainable future for the species. He received his BA in Environmental Studies and Economics from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and is currently working towards completing his Masters in Education. You may recognize him from his work in the elementary school and coaching basketball, volleyball, soccer, and swimming at KAS. When Jitesh isn’t on campus, he helps organize the Kaohsiung Ultimate League and can often be found on the ultimate frisbee field. You’ll frequently spot him in his wife Kali’s 4th grade classroom, or playing with his amazing daughter, Ilia, in Aozihdi Park.
