Kelly Bauman, Operations Manager
As Operations Manager, Kelly ensures that NWEI’s physical and web-based information systems are all running smoothly. Day to day, you’ll find him tweaking web layouts, researching soy-based inks and UV printing, creating tutorials and systems diagrams, and trying to remember all of his passwords.
Prior to joining NWEI, Kelly taught high school Spanish and ESL in California, supported implementation of assessment technologies at Northwest Evaluation Association, and, most recently, taught gardening to inmates at Columbia River Correctional Institution. Kelly holds a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership with a focus on Sustainability from Portland State University, as well as BCLAD teaching certification from the state of California. In his spare time, Kelly enjoys learning John Fahey and Mississippi John Hurt songs on his guitar, reading political economy, taking pictures, and walking.
