Chris Flores

Chris Flores took the helm at STEAM in July 2021 with 15 years of experience in education, having served most recently as administrative dean here since 2013. Prior to entering administration, he taught Spanish at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in secondary Spanish education from the University of Kentucky, a master’s degree in education from Georgetown College, a master’s degree in educational administration from Eastern Kentucky University, and a doctoral degree in educational leadership and organizational development from the University of Louisville.

“Dr. Flores has been with STEAM Academy since its inception,” said High Schools Chief James McMillin. “I cannot think of a better leader to continue pushing the mission and vision forward after Ms. (Tina) Stevenson announced her retirement.”
