[jig] Mechelle Peinado joins PAA as the school Guidance Counselor and teacher of AP Psychology, AP U.S. History, Personal Finance, and the Senior Project coordinator. She comes from the Montana Conference of Seventh-day Adventists where she and her husband were both teachers.
“Mechelle brings a wealth of experience to our staff,” says Principal Dan Nicola. “[She’s had a] previous career as an attorney, a counselor advising HIV+ and AIDS patients, as well as several years of teaching experience to validate her master’s degree in education.”
Jason Bibb will serve PAA as Vice Principal of Finance. After graduating from PAA in 2002, he went to Walla Walla University where he earned his degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Personal Finance.
Jason comes to PAA from Milo Adventist Academy where he was Vice Principal of Finance. Previous to that, he worked with accounts and billing in the Business Department at Adventist Medical Center.
“Jason’s broad experience, covering both hospital and school finance, is a great blessing to PAA,” says Principal Nicola. “Jason told me that he had such a positive spiritual and academic experience here as a student that he wanted to come back to PAA and help other students to enjoy a similar experience.”
