Thousand Oaks, CA—Compass Charter Schools (Compass) announces our 2023-24 Learning Coaches of the Year. At Compass, parents and guardians are known as the “Learning Coach” for their children and are an integral part of their children’s success. As Compass is a personalized learning public charter school, the learning coach facilitates much of the learning in collaboration with a supervising teacher.

Compass staff nominates learning coaches who have stood out as leaders and have excelled in supporting their scholars throughout the year. Join us in celebrating our

Veronica exemplifies what it means to be an involved and engaged learning coach. She goes above and beyond to provide her scholars with the best educational experience, which shows in all she does.” Ms. Titterinton truly exemplifies the ARTIC values, and the team looks forward to continuing to partner with her to ensure that both of her scholars continue their academic success.
