Evan Bartz

The Nueva School
6th Grade Writing and Humanities Teacher
Evan steps into role of sixth-grade writing and humanities teacher after working as an associate teacher for two years in Nueva's Lower School. He was born in San Jose and has lived most of his life in the Bay Area. He studied English literature at UC Berkeley and, before Nueva, tutored writing and history for middle and high school students in the Bay Area and taught English in Madrid, Spain. He is enamored with the teaching philosophies of Nueva and has incorporated them into his practice, including SEL, Design Thinking, and inquiry-based learning, to name a few. When he is not teaching, you can find him hiking, surfing, or with his head buried in a good book.
