Angela Young

Angela Young is a mother of four and a Conscious Parenting Guide who uses mindfulness, emotional awareness, and self-inquiry to help families create peaceful homes. She conducts parenting courses and works with parents on an individual and group basis with the focus of honoring self-direction in children and cultivating parent empowerment. At a young age Angela became immersed in entrepreneurial efforts, and for some time running her own business was her way of achieving satisfying self-growth. But after her children were born she struggled to find a school environment she felt comfortable with, and was overcome with interest towards shifting the educational and parenting paradigm. After completing several parenting programs, studying a bookshelf full of connection-based parenting books, and stumbling upon The Open School OC, her greatest source of self-growth is now living and breathing these philosophies in relationship with the children in her life. Listen to her on this podcast from Alpine Valley School about parenting a self-directed child.

Angela serves the school in the following roles: on campus staff, parent education and support, family liaison, and student mental health support.
