North Sacramento Charter School

Name: Kim Shores
Location: SAVA Charter School North Sacramento – Firehouse Community Center
Position:  Independent Study Teacher – Multiple Subjects; Lead Teacher/Enrollment Specialist

Education: BA in Liberal Studies from Sacramento State University. I also received my teaching credential from CSUS as well

About Me: I have been teaching at SAVA since 2010. I initially got my teaching credential to work with younger students, but after working at SAVA I found my home. I enjoy working with high school students and helping them to reach their goal of graduation and beyond. SAVA is a unique setting where I can work with my students one-on-one and get to know each of them as an individual with different goals and needs. It really is a blessing to have found SAVA.

Interests: I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.

Charter School North Sacramento

Name: John C. McMillen
Location: SAVA Charter School North Sacramento – Firehouse Community Center
Position:  Independent Study Teacher – Multiple Subjects

Education: BS in Biological Sciences from San Jose State University

About Me: I have been teaching at SAVA since 2008; two years at the Elk Grove campus; 3.5 years at the Power Inn site and 3.5 years at the Firehouse site. I taught 32 years of science and Biology in San Jose until I retired in 2005. I loved teaching in the traditional setting working with students in the classroom and doing lab experiments in biology. But, nothing compares then when I am working with students on a one-to-one basis, getting to know them, enjoying the good times and helping them deal with the troubles that cross their paths.

Interests: I love to read non-fiction covering current events, history, politics, and religion. I enjoy working the yard, planting trees and other plants and maintaining them. I look forward to all the “get-togethers” with family and friends almost on a weekly basis.

About Me: This is my first year at SAVA and I absolutely love what I do. I’ve been working with high school students for the last 5 years and coming to work at SAVA was just an amazing opportunity. I love working with students and helping them in their studying.

Interests: In my free time, I like being outdoors, going on road trips, hiking, biking, spending time with my family and friends.
