Tye Campbell, Director of Technology, Gilman School in Baltimore, Maryland

After graduating from St. Paul’s School (NH), Tye spent the first ten years of his career in corporate IT, learning and implementing best practices, as well as training end-users to help them become more productive. However, he always wanted to return to the independent school world. So in 2013, he left corporate to serve as the Director of Technology at Far Hills Country Day School (NJ). Then in the summer of 2016 he relocated to Maryland with his family to take on a bigger challenge at Gilman.

Tye is passionate about 21st century learning initiatives, team development, growth mindset, music, and sports (soccer, baseball, football, and basketball - and specifically, the Mets, Jets, and Knicks - yes, it's a sad life).
