I have had the privilege and honor of working in the field of education for the past 22 years and in the area of homeschooling and charter schools for 20 of those years. I am also a blessed homeschooling mom to 7 wonderful children, 6 who are still at home. I have loved every minute of this great adventure!
I received my Masters Degree in Teaching in 2001 from Grand Canyon University which I pursued because I love learning! I am passionate about personalized learning and believe in my heart that any parent can be their child’s best teacher. Working with parents who homeschool and homeschooling my own children has been my greatest joy.
I had the opportunity to work as a Senior Program Director of a Santa Cruz County charter school with almost 1000 students for several years. I found I loved guiding and training new and experienced teachers and managing a school program as much as I loved working one on one with the families as a home school teacher. It was amazing to be able, as an administrator, to make an even greater difference in students’ lives and have the power to make decisions that affected the school in a positive way. Now I have the privilege to work in that capacity again and more as the Senior Director of Inspire North. I look forward to partnering with you to make our school an amazing place!
