As the Founder and Director of Journey Academics, I am rewarded daily fulfilling my passion for leadership, inspiring and offering an educational model to students that is unique and innovative.
My goal in education has always been to focus on the whole child and foster a love of learning. Watching children grow and learn in ways that motivate and encourage them is my passion. I am thankful to be working alongside online, traditional, homeschooling families, and other professionals, to customize and create authentic learning experiences.
I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work as a teacher, online teacher, mentor, assessment coordinator, vendor lead and assistant director. I have truly enjoyed all the different aspects of education that I have had the opportunity to experience.
For the past 20 years, I have been dedicated to the field of education in both traditional, private and charter schools. I have been involved in every level from being a parent liaison, a teacher, lead committee member, human resources, enrollment and administration. I am fascinated with educational research in child development and understanding the unique learning styles of each child. I am honored to serve the staff and families of Journey Academics.
Our Programs provide engaging and relevant state standards aligned curriculum. Student needs are identified through ongoing assessments to inform and guide appropriate and effective intervention strategies. We offer a comprehensive system of supports to parents and students to ensure students are on track with grade level requirements and are college and career ready.
Our Educators believe that all students have the potential to meet or exceed academic standards. Parents, teachers, staff, and administrators work together as a professional learning community to evaluate instructional practices with focus on improving student performance.
Our Students are creative and complex thinkers, effective communicators, community/global participants, and empowered independent learners.
Our Families work closely with credentialed teachers to provide the best instructional practices for their children. Together, they review student assessment results and collaborate on a course of study that engages students and achieves grade level standards.
Our Community of stakeholders are clearly involved and invested in support of the collaborative programs to provide the best practices to ensure the success of each student.
