Hello Parents & Educators! Welcome to Luminous Minds!
I have inspired and educated young scholars for over 23 years. I graduated from Fresno State University with my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration. My career began as a classroom teacher, the majority being spent joyfully teaching primary-aged scholars. I worked tirelessly, giving 110% to each child that walked through my door. I did this because I strongly believe each child has a right to the best education possible. Throughout my teaching years, I proudly served in Title 1 schools. Due to my nature and ability to build relationships, use multi-sensory learning, and develop a culture and climate centered around having a growth mindset, my scholars consistently produced some of the highest academic scores in all the districts that I served. Go, scholars!
Being a lifelong learner, I became fascinated by research on how the human brain learns. My professional career evolved into a variety of leadership, coaching, and curriculum development positions. I had the pleasure of serving not only scholars, but also serving teachers. I spent years leading professional development trainings and workshops as well as guiding and coaching teachers on how to improve their practice. Additionally, I have served as an advocate for parents of children with learning disabilities or behavioral challenges. I consider myself a change agent; working to close the existing achievement gaps in our educational system and supporting all that I can for the benefit of ensuring our children receive the high-quality education they deserve.
It is my goal to bring my passion for teaching and learning to as many beautiful young minds as possible. I cannot wait for your scholar (or scholars) to learn with me!
Hello Parents and Educators! I am Brad Marsh, Director of Video Production and Graphics for Luminous Minds. I am a Sacramento native. I grew up with a passion for filmmaking. I remember hauling my camera around every day, as a kid, creating videos with friends. This ultimately led me to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies with a concentration in digital media from California State University, Sacramento. After graduation, I went to work with the Sacramento Kings for several years. I have since sought to use my skills and creativity to create videos that children and educators will find engaging and educational. I find great joy in knowing that the videos I help produce will not only educate youth but will bring smiles to their faces.
Hello Parents and Educators. I am Shirley LeRoy. My husband and I spent 25 years running a large manufacturing business in Sacramento. When our company was purchased by a national organization it gave me the opportunity to follow my passion — creating positive change in childhood education.
With my business experience and a degree in finance from the University of California, Los Angeles, I bring a seasoned perspective to this new and exciting learning platform.
