Meet Our Staff
Kenneth Kahn, Principal
"Educators have the power to change the direction of young people's lives and have a positive impact on the lives of future generations. Teaching and learning require great enthusiasm, thoughtful planning, deep desire, time and effort. I have the utmost respect for teachers and their practice. Learning is a joyous and continual process that leads to better living and has a positive impact on our families and communities. It is imperative that I share my journey as a learner, and continually model my love of learning where I expect our students, teachers, and parents to do the same. As a school principal, I am responsible for the safety, learning, and emotional growth of our students and teachers, and working with every part of our school community to achieve this is both my obligation and invitation."
Stephanie Aponte, Registrar & Secretary
Tony Stavropolous (“Mr. S”) has been teaching for twenty four years, and has worked at Redwood for the past year. Mr. S manages the Independent Study and Home Hospital programs, which offer kids alternatives to the traditional classroom.
Goal setting is the most important thing for Mr. S’s students, and he supports his students by making achievable short, mid, and long term goals. Mr. S loves that Redwood is small enough for the students and staff to really understand the student’s needs for success.
Outside of school, Mr. S loves to play music and see live music. We’re living in a golden age!
Matt Hassebrock currently teaches US History, Government, and Foods at Redwood. Mr. Hassebrock loves teaching at Redwood because our students constantly overcome huge obstacles. To help students continue learning at home, Mr. Hassebrock makes all classroom work available through Google classroom.
Mr. Hassebrock enjoys spending time with his wife and children. Their favorite family activities include hiking, hunting, riding horses, and are always looking for the next great book to read.
