About Robin Maganaris

Robin Maganaris has been principal at Nesbit School since 2011.  Her career in education started in 1993 as a 4th grade teacher at McAuliffe School in the Cupertino Union School District.  After six years at McAuliffe, she joined the San Carlos Charter Learning Center staff as a kindergarten and K/1 teacher and worked there for ten years.  After 16 years as a classroom educator, she made the move to administration and became principal at Panorama School in the Brisbane School District where she stayed for three years.  She then joined Nesbit's staff for the 2011-2012 year and has been here ever since. While she never imagined loving anything more than being a classroom teacher, she has found that being a school principal is her life's purpose.  In addition to being an educator, she is also a wife, a mother of two children (one in graduate school and one a sophmore in high school) and an enthusiastic reader.  She and her family live in Belmont.  Click here for Robin's Bio.
