Mr. Kirkbride

Ted Kirkbride is the founding principal of Quantum Academy. Ted has been in the Escondido Union School District since 1996 when he started his first position teaching bilingual math and science at Rincon Middle School. He has been a Teacher-on-Special Assignment, Project Specialist, elementary teacher and coach at Felicita, Central, and Oak Hill. Most recently Mr. Kirkbride has been the assistant principal at Oak Hill School. Ted hopes that by the time students leave Quantum Academy they are more motivated to serve their community and better prepared to meet the challenges they will face in the decades ahead. He wishes for all of our students to feel empowered to initiate their own learning instead of waiting for someone else to teach them and to one day be able to create their own future jobs instead of waiting for someone else to create one for them.
