Staff Spotlight- Elaina Mutis
My passion and involvement in education began many years ago while teaching pre-school and pre-K. I later took a position as Director of Curriculum for the early education school where I taught. My love of teaching and music transformed into starting my own business as owner and director of a children’s performing group, Spotlight Kids for over 10 years. I became involved in my school district by starting the district’s first support group for gifted educators and families of gifted children, TAG. I also was very involved in PTA, acting in the capacity of spokesperson for the school district on a state level. I have enjoyed teaching various courses on parent involvement and volunteerism to educators and parents. Throughout the years I have been involved in numerous community projects and have sat on the board of directors for several non-profit organizations, as well as managed a couple of local political campaigns. Eventually I took my business education and experience to start a career in Legal Business Management, which I enjoyed up until my last kiddo was off to college. Then my empty nest and I moved to California 2 years ago and I absolutely love it here! Currently my position as Business Manager at Mercury Academy has beautifully blended my love for children and their education and my experience in business administration. I have three grown children and a 2 year old grandson that I adore. I enjoy gardening, hiking, refinishing furniture, and exploring California’s cultural and natural beauty!
