The North Fork Vision Home and Community Program has a new academic team of educator consultants on board to guide and support the school's academic growth. Each educator consultant is highly qualified in the content area that she will oversee to provide support and enrichment activities for the program's learners.
For the past three years, North Fork Vision has focused upon academic quality and growth. This has led to the school receiving a performance rating from the state and full accreditation from the Delta County School District. This focus upon academic quality and growth continues with the school's new academic team.
Jane Vigueria will lead the educator consultants and is highly qualified in math. She has been at North Fork Vision for four years, but this is her first year in the leadership role to ensure the overall academic health of the school. Vigueria is also the new school assessment coordinator for North Fork Vision. She has 15 years of full-time teaching experience and is licensed in math, elementary education and business.
Christi Gubser is one of the new educator consultants who is highly qualified in science. She holds a master's degree in secondary science education and a bachelor's degree in environmental science. Gubser brings over 10 years of experience in alternative education which includes an understanding of whole child education and expeditionary learning. She is also fluent in French and Spanish.
Vanessa Hoff is also an educator consultant who is highly qualified in science. She has a master's degree in education and a bachelor's degree in biology and microbiology. She has been a licensed teacher in Colorado and Arizona. She has experience working with children at all grade levels. Vanessa has also taught advanced placement science courses and has experience working at both traditional and private schools.
Gubser and Hoff will work together to provide science enrichment activities like the science fair. Hoff explained, "Last year was the first time that North Fork Vision hosted a school science fair. Three of our learners went on to the state science fair and were awarded a special recognition from the American Psychological Association for their work. We want to continue to offer these experiences as our kids are really curious, and they can direct that curiosity into scientific investigation."
Kerry Noonan is the new educator consultant highly qualified in language arts at the elementary school level. She is a licensed elementary teacher in Colorado and New Mexico. She has a degree in biology and an endorsement in Spanish. Noonan has over 10 years of classroom experience working with elementary school students.
