Teacher Spotlight

Monique Combs

Hello, my name is Monique Combs and this is my 7th year teaching at ATP. I have taught kindergarten to young adults in my 25 year career. My job at ATP makes me happier and more fulfilled than any other teaching position I have ever held. It means so much to me

to see my students make progress in their own personal ways. I am originally from Long Beach and now live in Vista with my husband and our 2 spoiled dogs, 1 cat and a turtle. We love spending time with family and friends and traveling. Thank you so much for trusting me to help our students be their best selves!

Jeff Laird

My name is Jeff Laird. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, received a Bachelor's Degree from La Salle University, and my Teaching Credential/Masters Degree in Special Education from UC Santa Barbara. I am entering my tenth year with the OUSD Adult Transition Program, after a number of years living and teaching in the Santa Barbara area.

Personally, I am married and we have one dog (Eddie). My wife, Emily, is also a teacher! We love to go camping, work on our fixer upper house, hang on the beach and enjoy leisurely breakfasts at home. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, surfing, live music and being with family.

I have a passion to advocate for students' needs and strive to facilitate an inclusive, safe and fun learning environment (both on and off campus). I look forward to working together
