Evan Barth joined the upper school in the fall of 2000 and has taught mathematics, coached soccer and volleyball, been a class dean, and served on the Honor Council. He is presently the dean of studies and meets with each new student to create an academic plan for high school. He also chairs the Honor Board and co-advises the Link Crew and National Honor Society.
After growing up on the beach in Los Angeles, Mr. Barth moved north to attend Stanford. Along the way he worked on various research projects involving the creation of earthquake and bridge databases used for modeling damage due to earthquakes. While at Stanford he also enjoyed managing a student-run dining society with four chefs and 250 students. On the less serious side, Mr. Barth was a member of many championship intramural volleyball teams, and while at Stanford he continued coaching volleyball at boys and girls camps and at a local high school.
After teaching and coaching for a few years after graduation, the Stanford magnet pulled him back, and while studying for his master’s, Mr. Barth worked on a few projects involving Design-Build contracting. While the ensuing job in Colorado was a good place to examine this world from the inside and the Rockies really are everything that John Denver sings about, his passion for academia lead to a return to the Bay Area and The Harker School.
Mr. Barth lives in San Jose with his wife and three children. He thrives while reading with his kids, hiking with his family, tending his garden, playing the guitar and training for the next triathlon.
