Andrew had many years of frustrating academic experiences before attending Springstone, and it was a long journey to find the right school for him. Thankfully, we finally did. He was very fortunate to be able to attend such a special school. We will forever be grateful to you for accepting him as a student.

Upon graduation, she began working for the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Harbor Area in Orange County and learned that she really wanted to further her work with children and students. She applied to a new teacher program in Oakland in 2005, and was accepted and made the move to the bay, which has been one of the best decisions of her life! She received her Education Specialist credential as working as an intern from San Francisco State University and has worked in different settings around the bay, including public and nonpublic schools. Mrs. Rucker has also been working towards being a school administrator and has been part of the Springstone administration team for the last two years.
