Silvia was born and raised in Southern California. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and California State Long Beach and her teaching credential at Cal Poly Pomona. Prior to working as an elementary classroom teacher for 8 years, she was a K-12 substitute teacher. Shortly after becoming a stay at home mom, she started her own tutoring business where she taught reading, math and writing. While homeschooling she realized she had a passion for teaching writing and became a Registered Instructor with the Institute for Excellence in Writing.
Silvia is married and has 2 biological children 12 and 15 years old, and is currently fostering an 18 month old boy. She is thrilled to be on the California Enrichment Academy team. Silvia is most excited about encouraging parents and helping them create an educational plan that fits their individual child’s needs.
