Response to Instruction
Theresa is very proud to continue her teaching career at Da Vinci Innovation Academy, after more than ten years working in a traditional school setting. In her role at DVIA, she is thrilled to be able to provide language arts support to kids, and scaffold their skills as they begin to cultivate a lifelong love of reading. What appeals most to Theresa about Da Vinci Innovation Academy, is the absolute commitment all stakeholders have to educating the whole child–academics, creativity and problem-solving all get equal billing at DVIA. A South Bay native, Theresa earned her B.A. in Psychology from UC Santa Barbara, her Multiple Subject teaching credential at CSU Dominguez Hills and her Master’s Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix. When she is not in the classroom, she can be found hanging out with her ten-year-old daughter, Chloe, and her partner, Rick. Most likely, they will be traveling the globe, reading and cooking. Theresa’s secret wish is to be a published writer.
