Krista Mount | Director of Categorical Programs
Ms. Mount graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a bachelor’s degree in psychology with an emphasis in mathematics. She received her teaching credential from Saint Mary’s College of California and spent eight years teaching at a brick-and-mortar elementary school before joining CAVA at Sutter as a teacher during the 2005–2006 school year. Since then, she has served as lead teacher of middle school mathematics and as curriculum specialist for CAVA. As director of categorical programs, Ms. Mount works to ensure that all students have the resources they need to reach their full academic potential.
Brandy Scott | Director of Student Support Services
Ms. Scott is the director of student support services for CAVA. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a certificate in applied behavior analysis (ABA) from California State University, Fresno, and a master’s degree in special education from National University with a specialization in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). She has also worked directly with students with autism during her graduate and undergraduate years. Her background and experience are in management, banking, and finance. Most recently, she served as the related services manager for CAVA and four additional virtual schools. Ms. Scott believes that all students should be celebrated for who they are and has enjoyed the shift in education culture that recognizes that students with disabilities are students with abilities. Embracing the skills of students, especially due to neurological differences such as ASD is no longer a dream for the future, it is now. Ms. Scott is student-centered and passionate in her desire that all CAVA students with special needs are identified, supported, and served quickly and with excellence.
