About Terri!

Terri Novacek has found great joy as a homeschool mother, public-school teacher, and charter school administrator for more than thirty years. While she has worked in the field of education for over half her life, she still believes it true she learns more from her students, children, and colleagues than they do from her. She has a passion for learning, for understanding what makes people tick, and for seeing others be happy and authentic.  As the Executive Director of two public charter schools serving San Diego County, she is an advocate of school choice, student voice, and self-determined learning.  What brings her joy is time with family, adventures with her husband, being with nature, and learning something new every day.
