Principal's Message



Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Robert Kalach


Dear Families,

I am thrilled to lead the Center for Innovation and Digital Learning at Gulf Beaches Elementary as the school’s principal.  Our magnet school aids in providing more educational choice for families. We are pleased to serve the barrier island of St. Pete Beach and the surrounding Gulf Beaches communities. 

At the school, we work to open new vistas of student engagement and learning by incorporating technology through innovative practices that heighten the fun and enjoyment of learning for students, families and staff.

As principal, I bring true enthusiasm and success in education to the position. Among these accomplishments, I have been a classroom teacher in grades first through fifth. I have designed curriculum and instruction.

I am a proud, lifelong resident of Pinellas County and a successful product of Pinellas County Schools.  My wife and I have raised two children. Our son is retired from the United States Air Force and our daughter has followed her dream to change the world and is a teacher here in Pinellas County.  

Again, it’s great to be in Pinellas and serve as your principal!

Warm Regards,
Robert Kalach
Principal, Gulf Beaches Elementary Magnet School
