Dr. Johns to serve on Remake Learning cabinet

Northgate Superintendent Dr. Caroline Johns was one of five educators selected to serve on the Remake Learning cabinet. The board is evolving from a 3-person co-chair to a 5-person cabinet with a diverse array of education–focused experience.

The new Remake Learning Cabinet will consist of five regional leaders in education innovation:

  • Melanie Claxton, Senior Program Officer, Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation
  • Dr. Roger Davis, President, Community College of Beaver County
  • Kevin L. Jenkins, L.S.W.: President and Chief Executive Officer, Manchester Bidwell Corporation
  • Dr. Caroline Johns, Superintendent, Northgate School District
  • Dr. Todd Keruskin, Vice President, Professional Services at McGraw Hill

The new cabinet’s areas of expertise span many essential sectors that make up the Remake Learning network, including K–12 education, higher education, OST, philanthropy, and industry. Members will meet regularly to help set the organization’s strategic vision and future trajectory. The cabinet will be chaired by Gregg Behr, the founder of Remake Learning and executive director of The Grable Foundation.

“We’re beyond grateful to the leaders who — over the past 15 years — poured their energy, ideas, and joy into Remake Learning. Their efforts have made our network what it is today: one of the most innovative learning ecosystems on the planet. Remake Learning’s shift toward a larger advisory cabinet will build on that work, enabling us to better integrate the resources and opportunities offered by our incredible network of educators, employers, innovators, and regional leaders,” said Behr.

Remake Learning previously utilized a co-chair model in which three people, including Behr, oversaw a Remake Learning Council of nearly 50 members. When two co-chair members recently departed — Dr. Valerie Kinloch, former Dean of the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh, became president of Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC, and Dr. Jim Denova recently retired — it provided an opportunity for the organization to expand its advisory structure to better represent the full ecosystem of stakeholders in education.

“Remake Learning has been constantly evolving since its creation in 2007. Our new Remake Learning Cabinet members offer unique perspectives that will help our network collectively advance cross-sector innovation in various learning environments throughout the greater Pittsburgh region and beyond,” said Tyler Samstag, Director of Remake Learning.

About Remake Learning
Remake Learning is a free, peer network for educators and innovators in the greater Pittsburgh region. The network helps connect people, projects, and organizations, making it easier for them to share best practices, collaborate on new ideas, and find funding to catalyze new ways of learning. In 2022, Remake Learning celebrated its 15th anniversary celebrating growth and mentorship for building ecosystems of learning across the region, country, and world. Learn more at
