Gina has a diverse background in education and previous work experience with youth that spans 10 years. Her varied interactions as teacher, tutor, coach, and nanny have helped her understand and appreciate each child as an individual with unique strengths and challenges. She earned her teaching credential and Masters degree in Education from the University of Southern California in 2010. During her student teaching at CACS she fell in love with the school, the students, and the staff. Previously Gina lived in Seattle, so naturally she enjoys foggy mornings, hiking, and lots of coffee.
