Hi! I’m Nancy! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services, Mental Health and Secondary Education emphasis from California State University in Fullerton. I am also certified in core subjects 4th-8th grade and English as a Second Language (ESL). I have worked with Teach for America and have been in the classroom for 10 years teaching various subjects including Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and Spanish. I strongly believe in holistic and equitable education that takes all aspects of a child into consideration to ensure their success. I love coaching because it is done in a real world context and in real time. This is helpful and rewarding because setting attainable goals for learning and growing can be worked on and adjusted to the specific needs of the student. I hope to pass on to my students the importance of hard work and learning from your mistakes!
