Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Gina DeRoos

Gina DeRoos

I am the Intervention Specialist and SST/504 Coordinator for NGSA. I have a Bachelor of Science in Educational Studies from Grand Canyon University. I am currently working toward my Literacy Interventionist Certification through the Center for Effective Reading Instruction and The International Dyslexia Association. 

I have had the privilege of working for the San Joaquin County Office of Education in their Educational Services department and Charter School for 10 years.

I believe that students need a thorough understanding of the structure of language, strategic thinking, and vocabulary to learn to be critical and efficient readers and writers. As an Intervention Specialist, I work with students who in spite of appropriate classroom instruction are not meeting grade-level benchmarks. The purpose of intervention is to improve students' reading by helping increase their decoding, fluency, comprehension or vocabulary.

In addition to working at NGSA, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our animals (2 cats and a chicken). I also love taking trips to the beach, hiking, reading, and attending sporting events--Go A's!! I am also a certified health coach and enjoy helping women create healthy lifestyles through nutrition and fitness. 

I am looking forward to meeting and collaborating with parents to make this a joyful and successful school year.
