Home Study Coordinator

(805) 405-5077
As the Home Study Coordinator for AAS' Home Study Program, I monitor and support scholar achievement. I provide Learning Coaches with curriculum options based on scholar learning styles and needs, manage the use of funds for curriculum and lessons, and regularly communicate with and support families in their home study adventure.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish with a Minor in Mathematics from Loyola Marymount University. I also earned my Secondary Teaching Credential (Math and Spanish) and a Master's Degree in Mathematics Education from CSU Northridge.

I live in Granada Hills (San Fernando Valley) with my husband and three kids -- ages 14, 11, and 5 -- whom I homeschool. My hobbies include baking, cake decorating, reading and spending time with family.

Educational Facilitator

(805) 405-9200
I am an Educational Facilitator (EF) for the Academy of Arts and Sciences Charter School (AAS), serving over 2,000 scholars throughout the State of California. I am a part of the Home Study branch. In my role as EF, I provide academic guidance to Home Study scholars in grades TK through 12th grade as well as providing instructional, operational, and purchasing support to their learning coaches. I also work collaboratively with the staff in fulfilling our responsibilities for the scholars we serve.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Biola University in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Elementary Education. I also completed a Biology minor, because I love science! I have my Master of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Autism. I earned my preliminary teaching credential in 2007 and earned my CLEAR CA teaching credential through UCSD in 2011.

I started my teaching career as a substitute teacher and then taught 7th and 8th grade science for 4 years in Santa Ana. I moved on to teach 2nd grade for an additional 4 years in Anaheim at Fairmont Private School.

I live in Orange with my wonderful husband, Ryan and my adorable son Carter who just turned 3 months at the start of this school year! I love living in California because of the exquisite weather and diverse topography.
