Stephanie Hustler, Writing Ranger
Hi everyone! I am a former teacher with 10+ years of teaching elementary and middle school. I love being in the classroom and seeing the excitement on my students' faces when they learn. I love to joke around and express my boisterous personality. It seems to work well in the class. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 9 years and I am also a mother to two beautiful, spunky girls ages 3 1/2 and 7 1/2. They keep me on my toes! I now am a professional substitute, which allows me to be flexible as a mom. Our family loves the beach and I am an avid surfer. I was the camp director for Surf Diva Surf School in San Diego for a few years and was so blessed to be able to get do what I love the most, being in the ocean and surfing! I am really looking forward to meeting and working with everyone this summer!
Kelsey Weston, Writing Ranger (Middle School)
Kelsey Weston is a middle school math and science teacher at Vista Heritage, who misses reading novels and creative writing during the school year. She has a Masters in Education from USC and a Bachelors in Social and Behavioral Sciences from Seton Hall University. This is her second summer with Adventures in Writing Camp and she is very excited! Feel free to ask her to sing some Disney songs with you, because she probably knows most or all of the words. She enjoys being transported to far away places to play quidditch with Harry, dig holes with Stanley Yelnets, and float down the river with Huckleberry.

Cassandra Reveles, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Hi y'all, I'm Cassandra Reveles, a junior at CSU Chico. I love kids and I'm pursing a career in Liberal Studies (YAY for teachers). I plan on enrolling to the bilingual teaching credential. In my free time I LOVE to watch movies, anywhere from comedy to thrillers, just not anything scary. I also enjoy a good beach day, and hiking although I don't do it often as I'd like. I would say I'm a pretty cool, energetic, and very friendly person.

Ashley is all about reading, writing and helping kids have fun when they learn! She currently teaches middle school Language Arts, but got her start in teaching as a creative writing instructor for grown-ups. This is Ashley’s second session of Adventures in Writing Camp, and she loves how writing and communicating clearly can help people in all parts of their life, not just school. When Ashley’s not teaching, she’s usually reading a good book, hiking with her dog, painting, gardening or practicing yoga.
