Sometimes a conversation starts with the phrase, “Don’t take this personally, but ….” Victoria Fielding, Academic Director at Discovery Ranch takes her job very personnally. It’s probably because as a professional educator she’s sees in many of her students the same struggles she saw in her own son. “Ethan fell through the cracks in the public education system,” she explains. And every time she sees a Discovery student struggle and question whether it’s possible to even understand, let alone excell, in school Victoria takes it personally.
