Illume Pursuits WeeCare's mission is to build and nurture children by designing academic and social learning experiences that inspire faith, hope, and love. In a developmentally-appropriate way, our curricula prepare children for the 21st century focusing on foundational skills from reading to social, learning to code, and more. We also share the truths of the bible and encourage Christian character development in a loving environment.
For over 27 years, I walked in covenant faith in ministry, marriage, and family. I had the privilege to believe and work with kindergartener children for over 23 years as a public school teacher. I have field-tested and established the creation of Symphony Reader and cMath, the most effective, innovative, and fun-filled learning programs that ensure academic success, confidence, and a love for learning. These programs are patented and exclusive to Illume Pursuits WeeCare. Peter administers academic education at Illume Pursuits while working as a credentialed public school teacher in Santa Ana. I have a bachelor's from NYU and a Masters from USC.
Fun Fact: Every year at my school, I love participating in retirement skits and playing Santa Claus.
In 2019, I earned my Masters Degree in Education from the University of Notre Dame. As part of my courses, I held full-time teaching responsibilities as a fourth-grade teacher in Tucson, Arizona, for two years. I am excited to lead the implementation of every course offered and to meet the individual needs of every student based on best practice.

In 2019, I completed my undergraduate courses at the University of Southern California and graduated with a degree in Business Administration. During all of my four years, I interned with CDW learning about the integration of technology in higher education.

Additionally, I will be assisting with teaching all of our courses and supervise the students. I am also the lead designer of our Discipleship curriculum.
Fun Fact: When I was younger, I wanted to be an Archaeologist because of Indiana Jones.

At Illume Pursuits WeeCare, I am excited to be assisting with the instruction of the curricula, from planning lessons to helping and assessing students individually.
