Apollo's Team at Golden Oak
My name is Emal Numan and I am the new Site Director for Apollo Before/After School Program at Golden Oak. I am thrilled to be part of this amazing program here at Golden Oak. I have been a preschool teacher for the past two years. I enjoy teaching children and learning from them. I was raised in the Bay Area where I attended San Jose State University and graduated with a BS in Aviation (Airport Operation). I also attended Columbia Southern University for my graduate studies and received my MBA with concentration in Healthcare management. My love for teaching has encouraged me to further pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education. I currently hold a Site Supervisory Permit in early childhood education. My wife and I are raising two school age boys ages 13 and 11. As a family, we enjoy hiking on the weekends, playing soccer and spending time together at home.
Hello, my name is Marlene Arevalo and am a Before/After School Program Educator at Apollo. I am Nicaraguan- American and earned my Bachelors in Sociology from California State University East Bay. While completing my undergraduate studies, I was given the opportunity to work with at risk- youth and facilitated educational services. With my background in Sociology, I am dedicated to the social and educational development of each child at Apollo and wish to provide the best enrichment program experience that I possibly can. During my free- time, I enjoy activities such as traveling, baking and writing.
