About Mrs. Evans
I began working for LAUSD almost eighteen years ago. 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 VAAS and 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. When the construction was complete in early 2011, I applied for Valley Region High School #4 and was offered a position. 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 two Assistant Principals. As an AP, a few of the things I am responsible for are:
- Attendance Review Board Hearings
- VAAS Master Calendar
- VAAS Weekly Bulletin
- SBAC Testing Coordinator
- CAASPP Interim Assessments
- School Tours for Prospective Families
- Website Maintenence
- Departments: English, Performing Arts, Science
