MEET THE TEAM
Leighanna Sears, Site Administrator
It is Leighanna's second year with AIW Camp and she is super excited to be back! During the school year Leighanna is the band director at Jurupa Valley High School, but she is also a fully certified English teacher in the state of California, and is excited to share her love of writing with all of the new and returning campers!
Zachary Peterson, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Zachary’s love of language is only outmatched by his passion for learning. A recent graduate of California State University Fullerton, with Bachelor’s Degrees in both English and Theater, Zachary is currently pursuing a career in education. Realizing from a young age that someone had to be making edu-tainment programs like Sesame Street and Blues Clues, Zachary has devoted much of his life to inspiring the same level of joy in learning new things. In his spare time Zachary enjoys old films, board games, and carpentry. His own writing is focused on fantasy and science fiction, which he likes to bring to life with table-top games. He is excited to share his passion for writing and creating this summer with Adventures in Writing!
Cassandra Reveles, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Hi y'all, I'm Cassandra Reveles, a Senior at CSU Chico. I love kids and I'm pursing a career in Liberal Studies (YAY for teachers) with a minor in Spanish. 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.
Alysha Stockton, Assistant Site Administrator
Coming from a family of School District Workers, Alysha easily perceived her readiness to help as well as learn and she fell right into the work of educating youth! Alysha, also known as Miss A, started her journey very young when she would help her grandmother at her in-home daycare. Through helping the kids at the daycare with homework, she soon found writing not only as an outlet but also something fun and creative to do. Miss A began doing Children’s Theater in college and found joy with the littles and bigs of primary and secondary schools. She finished college with an Associates Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences and a minor in Theater. Though graduating, Miss A returned for 3 years to continue spreading life lessons through children’s theater. Thus began Miss A’s next journey. To test the waters, Miss A started a summer at the Girl Scout Camp of Northern California near Santa Cruz, CA. The following fall she casually whisked away to the San Bernardino mountains where she taught STEM science, hikes (day and night!) and summer adventure camps. Here she stayed for almost 4 years. After leaving the mountains, Miss A continued enlightening the youth by Site Coordinating and Administrating through The Boys and Girls Club and returned to the Los Angeles School District.
