Sasha Kingsley was lucky enough to grow up on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula, and is excited to be back in her hometown of Monterey. She has devoted over 20 years to the field of education in various settings including teaching science to middle school students, and instructing English as a Second Language in Spain, Thailand, and at the University of California, Davis. She also had the opportunity to lead curriculum workshops for educators from Mexico, Colombia, and Japan.
In 2017, Sasha became director of the International Learning Center at UC Davis, which hosted orientations, student clubs, advising, tutoring and other events for students who were studying abroad. She also served as an advisor and program manager for aspiring elementary teachers who come from underserved communities in the Salinas/South County areas through the Teacher Pathway Program at CSU Monterey Bay.
Sasha’s passion for education lies in the roots of social justice, empowering educators and students to become agents of change, and building an inclusive community in educational institutions. She is a teacher at heart, and loves to be surrounded by, and learning from students. In her free time, she likes to spend time hiking, foraging for mushrooms, and traveling to new destinations both in the US and abroad. Her greatest joy is spending time with her two children.
