ACE High School Principal - Megan Moilanen

Megan Moilanen comes to ACE Charter High School with over a decade as an educator. She taught at KIPP Bay Area Schools and served as an Assistant Principal and a Director of Curriculum and Assessment before joining ACE Charter High School as Principal in June 2019. Ms. Moilanen fell in love with teaching while she served as a teaching fellow for the Breakthrough Collaborative during her senior year of college. After spending a summer teaching 8th graders with Breakthrough, she knew she wanted to be a teacher. After graduating and earning her teaching credential from California State University, Fullerton, Ms. Moilanen began teaching 9th grade History while also developing the high school program for Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano. In 2013, Ms. Moilanen moved to Oakland to teach at KIPP King Collegiate. During this time she completed her Masters in Educational Leadership from CSUF where she researched teacher influence on student perceptions of self- efficacy and growth mindset. Ms. Moilanen is thrilled to be an ally and an advocate for her amazing scholars at ACE Charter High School. She believes deeply in each scholar's potential and the power of school-family partnerships. On her free time, Ms. Moilanen loves spending time with her growing family and her two rescue dogs.
