About Mrs. Evans
I've been working for LAUSD for over 20 years. With a B.A. in English from the University of Southern California, I started out teaching English at Valley Alternative Magnet. During this time I earned a Masters in Educational Administration and an Administrative Services Credential from California State University Northridge. After about seven years in the classroom, I became a Literacy Coach for Local District C. My coaching assignment was split between Holmes MS, Sherman Oaks C.E.S. and Reseda HS. Since it was a temporary assignment, once it was over, I returned to Valley Alternative as an English Teacher & Intervention Coordinator.
On my way to and from work each day, I would drive by the construction zone that is now Valley Academy of Arts and Sciences. Each day during my drive I would think to myself, "I'm going to work there someday." I had no idea at the time, what the plan for the school was going to be, but I just felt like it would be great. The construction was complete in early 2011 and Valley Region High School #4 was born. By the time the school year began, the name changed from VRHS #4 to Valley Academy of Arts and Sciences. I started working here as an English Teacher/Testing Coordinator, then I served as the Intervention Coordinator and now I am one of three Assistant Principals. As an AP, a few of the things I am responsible for are:
- CAASPP Testing
- Device Management/Distribution and Collection
- Science Department
- VAAS Master Calendar
- VAAS Weekly Bulletin
- Website Supervisor
