Scott Balwinski

Chief Operating Officer

Scott oversees operations at Teaching Strategies, including the areas of customer success, support & technical services, logistics, and business information systems.

Scott has over 25 years of operational experience concentrated in the education industry. In addition to early learning at Teaching Strategies, Scott’s education sector experience spans K-12 and higher education levels.

Prior to Teaching Strategies, Scott was with K12 Inc. for more than 10 years, occupying several positions until his role as Senior Vice President. In this position, he headed the operations group and held a variety of leadership roles in areas including enrollment operations, program management, process improvement, and the classroom products business line.

In his experience with higher education, Scott was a vice president with Delta Career Education Corporation, where he led the expansion of its commercial driver’s license (CDL) offering as it more than tripled in size. He also drove process improvement projects informed by data analysis to more effectively acquire and serve its students.

In addition to his experience in the education industry, Scott was most notably the CEO of Propane Taxi—a propane tank delivery service—where he oversaw the general management of the company and led it through a business transformation culminating in a successful sale of the company. Earlier in his career, Scott also held operationally focused roles at America Online, Diamond Technology Partners, and KPMG.

Scott holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an M.B.A. from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia.

As a son of two public school teachers, Scott’s pull towards education was inevitable. He passionately believes that by equipping teachers with tools that enable individualized learning, they can more powerfully improve outcomes for all children—particularly our youngest learners.
