About Sofia: Sofia has led her school’s shift to personalized learning over the last two years. She represents the principal voice on Yuma’s “Brain Trust,” a vision-setting and decision-making body for personalized learning for the district’s 17 schools.

What has been the impact of personalized learning? “At the beginning, we were all very nervous. Now it’s a complete turnaround. Now we are all on the same page, we really felt like we are all learning from each other. When it comes to our scores, I see a tremendous growth on our benchmarks. And we are working so hard at student ownership and having students set goals for themselves.”

What is your superpower? “Loving what I do. My parents were migrant workers, so I used to work in the fields during the summer, and I know how that is and it’s hard work. My parents instilled in me the importance of education, and I want to do the same for these children. I know they can do a lot more than what I’ve done.”

“Sofia is a fierce advocate for her students and teachers. She realizes the importance that personalized learning will play in enable her students to be successful both in school and life.”
