A Redondo Beach native, Ms. Egan has been married to the love of her life since 2001 and is the happy mother of three children. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Literature as well as Women’s Studies from UC San Diego in 1996 and Master of Arts degrees in English in 2000 as well as in Education in 2003 from Loyola Marymount University.
Ms. Egan began her teaching career at Notre Dame Academy in 1997. After teaching at NDA and then at Bishop Montgomery (her Alma Mater), she moved to PVHS where she taught English, AP Capstone and AVID from 2002-2020.
Ms. Egan spent 23 rewarding years not only teaching, but also in various leadership capacities such as PVHS AVID Coordinator, PVPUSD AVID District Director, Capstone Senior Project Coordinator, BTSA Mentor and professional development facilitator on the Culturally Relevant Teaching (CRT) team.
Because she comes from a large, multi-generational family of educators, Ms. Egan sees education as her family’s trade. She explains, “I have always loved the feeling of helping people understand concepts or create new ideas or do more than they thought possible. This feeling is central to my core value system. It is at the heart of my teaching and leadership.”
In 2020, Ms. Egan made the transition from classroom teacher, to Assistant Principal at PVIS. As a school leader, she strives to help others grow to be their best-selves. Her leadership is guided by the philosophy that all students have individual gifts, capacities, challenges and are deserving of an education that embraces their uniqueness and, therefore, pushes them to exceed their potential.
