For Students & Parents

The coronavirus pandemic, campus closures, and conflicting interpretations of data, policy, and leadership have created chaos and stress for students and their families heading into the 2020-21 school year. In the midst of all the confusion, however, there are legitimate opportunities for students and their families to thrive and excel.

If you are a parent, educator, or student who is looking for answers or support, I can help.

Please Contact Me today with your questions, which may include these and more:

  • How can I navigate education/school policy, technology, life online, and balance at home so that my child continues to learn, connect with friends, stay active and engaged, and build their portfolio for graduation and beyond while I work and we all get through this in a healthy way?


  • How can I communicate more effectively with teachers and school/district administrators so that I know I’m getting through and my child’s needs are getting met?


  • How can I support my child with online content and/or personalized teaching, tutoring, coaching, or counseling that provides the interaction I know my child needs to be successful?


  • How can I connect with a California-credentialed teacher to administer a homeschooling program?


  • How can I connect with a community of peers who are dealing with similar issues?
