Gail has been involved with education since she first tutored college students when she was 20. Since that time she has taught Mathematics and Senior Leadership, served as Director of Student Services, Academic Coach, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, and now Director of Academics at Pacific Coast Christian Prep. She has served on the visiting committee for Accreditation as well as helped guide three schools successfully through the process. Throughout her career, she has remained passionate about training teachers in the instructional methods needed to successfully guide students to discern the world around them through a Biblical lens as they study each of the disciplines needed to be fully prepared for success at the collegiate level. Gail and her husband Richard have five adult children. Victor and Jeremiah are Project Managers, Joy owns Vida Bella Salon for hair, Santiago is a trained EMT and entrepreneur and Pamela is a student at Liberty University.
Richard was born in Juarez, Chihuahua (Mexico). His family emigrated to the United States when he was in elementary school. He remembers his father saying "Ricardo, in the US you can do anything you want. All you have to do is work hard in school and obey your teachers, and good things will unfold." Well, Senior Luis Andujo was absolutely correct: all four of his children graduated from universities, two with doctoral degrees.
Realizing the importance of obtaining a college education, Richard earned an B.A. in Social Science with a minor in Spanish from San Diego State University (SDSU), an M.A. in Political Science from SDSU and an Ed.D. in Educational Administration from Pensacola Christian College. Since academics and athletics were so critical to his development, he decided to teach: first, Political Science at Southwestern Community College and San Diego State University, then high school Spanish and Physical Education. During this time, he was asked to serve in administration where he found his unique gift set of empowering teachers and parents to use their individual backgrounds and knowledge to train students for their futures. Pacific Coast Christian Prep is the third school he has been a part of launching.
He is thrilled to be a part of the PCCPrep team as they seek to create a school that is academically rigorous and spiritually vibrant.

Erika is a veteran educator with many years of experience. She has taught from 1st grade to 12th grade students which prepared her for being an administrator who understands her students as well as the teachers.

She believes that if we put Christ First in our lives, we will have a balanced life. The verse that describes Christian Education for her is: "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" Mark 8:36

Angela comes from a legacy of Christ-serving educators. With both her mother and father as teachers, one could say that “teaching is in her blood.” Raised in Orange County, Angela remembers the joy of helping her family with their classrooms. She learned from her parents that God loves her. She also learned the truth about the Lord from her pastor-grandpa and grandma. In high school, she loved using her gifts and knowledge from God to teach younger children at church.
It was God’s will for Angela in 2008 to declare a Liberal Studies (Education) major at Cal Poly SLO. At this time, her faith became her own and she went from believing in God to believing God and loving Him back. During college, she married her childhood sweetheart, who also loves the Lord. When she finished her credential at Cal Poly, she and her husband, Vince, were called to work in San Diego County.
