Tamie Stewart, Education Facilitator
I have been in education since 1997, I have worked in a public classroom setting and at Golden Valley since 2010. I have three wonderful children that keep me very busy as a taxi, baseball mom, and homework helper, and in my free time I enjoy long distance swimming. My favorite part of my job is working with families, watching the students grow and learn, and helping parents create an educational program that best fits their child’s learning style.
Kelly Villalovos, Education Facilitator
I have been in the education field since 1994 and with Golden Valley Charter School since 2013. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such an amazing and supportive staff! I homeschool my own 4 children and am familiar with all the joys and frustrations that may come along with homeschooling. I love being the cheerleader for parents and students who choose this route. In my free time, I like to read, watch movies, take road trips, go camping and take an occasional cruise now and then.
