Dede Torrez

Director - Quality, and Curriculum

I have 20 years of teaching experience with a BA from California State University with graduate teaching credentials in both Elementary and Special Education. I have been with Positive Ally® since its inception and have held multiple roles in teaching, administration, and senior management. I have contributed extensively to the design of Positive Ally’s leadership and academic curricula.

Teaching comes naturally to me and I easily connect with children and families. In fact, what I find most fulfilling and rewarding about being an educator is the lifelong connection between students and teachers. To see my young students grow into responsible and amazing adults is what makes me smile and why I know this was the right career for me.
