Murielle Montreuil

Social Worker



Murielle Montreuil is appreciative of the educational and traveling opportunities she has had in Canada, California and Italy.  Many of these opportunities were possible because she grew up in a multicultural environment and because she attended university. Murielle enjoys working as a school social worker as it allows her to work in collaboration with educators, parents, and the community with the main purpose of ensuring that scholars reach their fullest potential. In her spare time, Murielle can be found either working out at the gym, participating in outdoor activities, or cooking. She is also passionate about traveling and improving her language skills.



Keith Nuthall



Keith Nuthall grew up liking school. It was a place he felt comfortable and successful. It turns out showing up to school each day, acing multiple-choice exams, and serving as yearbook Editor-in-Chief earned him a diploma and left him under prepared. This life experience now drives Keith to design and serve high schools that approach educating underserved urban students differently. He is committed to equity for each and every student, and the expectation that all students can achieve college and career success. Keith is a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Urban Superintendents Academy at University of Southern California. His most recent leadership positions include:

  • Co-Founder, Odyssey STEM Academy
  • Founding Principal, Del Lago Academy – Campus of Applied Science
  • Principal, Del Dios Middle School
  • District Director, Carnegie Schools for an New Society

Keith is most happy when walking the beach with his wife Mona, proud of his daughters Emily and Katie, and at ease when hanging out with Cesar, Dei, and Moni.
