Meet Our Staff
Candace Sekyere: Head of School
Candace is the co-founder of Acton Academy Idaho Falls. As a former teacher in the public school system, she is very aware of how outdated and broken our current school system really is. When it was almost time for her to enroll her oldest daughter in elementary school, she started looking for alternative options to the traditional school system. That is when she discovered Acton Academy and set her mission to bring this innovative school to Idaho Falls for her daughters and the children in her community.
Abbie Fay: Lead Guide-Elementary
Abbie recently moved to Idaho Falls from Charlotte, North Carolina and is excited to be a part of Acton Academy Idaho Falls. She has a BA in Religion with a concentration in Youth Ministry from Liberty University. Her background includes being a pre-school teacher, a children’s specialist ski instructor, and most recently a children’s pastor. Through these experiences, she has developed a love of game-based learning, and helping children think more deeply about the world and their role in it. Abbie has a passion for lifelong learning and loves making things with her hands. She is an avid skier, potter, and loves going on bike rides with her husband.
Abbie believes that every child has the potential to change the world, and she is excited to guide and support the learners as they each embark on their own hero’s journeys.
Cassidy Fohs: Lead Guide-Spark
Cassidy is excited to bring her Montessori experience to our new Spark Studio (ages 4 to 6) in January.
