Gulf Beaches Elementary Magnet School

Center for Innovation and Digital Learning

 Picture Dear Families,

I am thrilled to lead the Center for Innovation and Digital Learning at Gulf Beaches Elementary as the school’s new principal.  As we move to bring the school online, this is a bold step forward for our school district in providing more educational choice for families. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to once again serve the barrier island of St. Pete Beach and the surrounding Gulf Beaches communities. 

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

As your new 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. Most recently, I served the past six years as principal at a high performing elementary school in the district.

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 currently serves in the United States Air Force and our daughter attends a local university.  
Again, it’s great to be in Pinellas and serve as your principal!

Warm regards,
Robert Kalach
Principal, Gulf Beaches Elementary School
