Jazmine Prinn | K–8 Academic Administrator
Jazmine holds bachelor's and master's degrees in education. She began her career teaching in a brick-and-mortar school in 2005 and taught high school English for about eight years before becoming an instructional coach and eventually a literacy director for one of the largest charter districts in Los Angeles. Jazmine then joined DirectEd, an educational management firm, where she was able to marry her institutional knowledge with online learning across several schools and hundreds of teachers and school support staff. That's where her spark for online education started, thus carving her pathway toward the endless opportunities that online schooling provides. She is excited and committed to making this option accessible to all families, as they explore the best fit for their student's academic journeys.
