Fischer holds a Bachelor of Science degree in General Studies with a science emphasis from the University of Southern California, a Master’s degree in Educational Management from the University of LaVerne, and multiple educational credentials. She is a past recipient of the Santa Clarita Teacher Tribute Award and has been named Santa Clarita Valley PTA’s Outstanding Administrator and the Association of California School Administrators Region 15’s Co-Administrator of the Year.

In a letter to her Board, Fisher highlights her passion for “the personalized education models that iLEAD continues to build to achieve innovative, supportive learning opportunities for all learners,” and her strong belief that “all students can achieve their maximum potential if instruction is designed to meet individual student needs.”

“I continually study innovative methods in the field of education, including new programs, material, and technology. I believe in empowering learners and staff with the tools they need to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing society,” Fischer said.
