About Miss Minchella

Miss Minchella is thrilled to be joining the Advanced Virtual Academy team this year. She received her Bachelor’s from Loyola University New Orleans in Film and Digital Media in 2016 and received the Peggy McCormack Outstanding Film and Digital Media Scholar Award.
Miss Minchella worked in Early Childhood Development with Tulane University until 2017 and moved to serve as a Director of Training for a 9-unit collection of restaurants across Washington, Texas, California, and Arizona. In 2018, she joined the Great Hearts Academies in Scottsdale working with both kindergarten and third grade students. She participated in the Apprentice Teacher Program and worked closely with a master teacher to learn more about cultivating a positive classroom environment and to dive deeper into curriculum development.
This year, Miss Minchella is eager to present students with their virtual classroom environment to ensure their engagement and success in learning digitally. When Miss Minchella is not teaching you can find her practicing piano, reading a new book, baking her favorite treats, or finding fun ways to be active at home.
