Angie is proud to be joining SCVi this year as an English Facilitator in our Upper School Program. She brings with her a rich international background and years of teaching at the elementary, middle, high school, and college levels. During the past five years, she worked at Monarch Academy as a pre-K teacher and Curriculum Coordinator. Angie was born and raised in Macedonia, a small, mountainous country in South East Europe. Growing up with a father (corporate lawyer), mother (nurse), and brother (an agricultural engineer), she was always encouraged to find a fine balance between her enthusiastic educational pursuits and dynamic lifestyle. At age 7, she joined the city choir and traveled all over Europe by the end of high school. After getting her Dental Technician degree and working as one for a few months, she realized she had chosen the wrong career path. Shortly after, she ventured into education and got her bachelor’s of science degree in education and her Single Subject Teaching Credential in English from South East European University. Six years ago, she came to California. When she became familiar with the U.S. educational system, she decided to make a change and get all the necessary requirements to teach here. This included an associate’s degree in early childhood education, master’s degree in curriculum and instruction, and PhD in leadership in educational administration. Learning in Angie’s classroom is self-directed, personally responsive, and socially mediated where the individual motivation and effort of all learners is important and central.
