ALL His Kids Executive Director
Bill Gibbons is an educator, author, businessman, and entrepreneur who has dedicated his life to serving Jesus Christ. He began his career as an elementary teacher, then transitioned to a junior and senior high reading specialist and administrator. During his eleven years in public education, he was twice designated in different districts as young educator of the year. He wrote a book published by Random House on how to increase student performance while lowering instructional costs. He left public education to form a non-‐profit, research-‐based company to examine and create effective practices to increase student achievement. As a result of his research, he founded HOSTS Learning, a for-‐profit corporation, and served as CEO and chair of the board for 29 years. The company was created to provide proven, research-‐based solutions to school districts across the nation. Under Mr. Gibbons’ leadership and the Holy Spirit’s direction, HOSTS Learning grew to become the third largest provider of supplemental services to public schools in the nation. HOSTS Learning served over a million students in 44 states and Central America, and was accorded the “Blue Chip” award by the National Chamber of Commerce as one of the top entrepreneurial companies in America. Mr. Gibbons worked with national leaders in education, business, research, and politics. He was blessed to work with two US presidents, congressional leaders, and governors to create high-‐performing, low-‐cost practices that advanced learning in low-‐achieving students. HOSTS was the only practice identified in the landmark legislation, “No Child Left Behind”, as a national model. After retiring from HOSTS Learning in 2008, Mr. Gibbons was appointed superintendent of Portland Christian Schools in Portland, OR. In 2011, he accepted the position of superintendent of Cornerstone Christian Academy for Learning & Leadership (CCALL) in Vancouver, WA, where he served for eight years. CCALL has become one of the most technologically advanced Christian schools in America. The school has grown at an average rate of 13% a year, and under Bill’s leadership, Cornerstone relocated to a new campus in 2018. Mr. Gibbons stepped down as Superintendent of CCALL in July 2019 to become Chairman of the Board of Trustees at CCALL and Executive Director of ALL His Kids (AHK), a nonprofit organization dedicated to Advancing the Kingdom of God by funding and replicating CCALL around the nation and world. He is helping to plan, fund, and launch an Early Childhood and K-‐12 school modeled on biblical principles and around Stanford University’s “Schools of the Future”. The theme of the school will be “In Search of Truth”. The emphasis will be placed on modeling instructional practices around students’ spiritual gifts and academic passions.
Sandra Yager, a native of Argentina, is a dynamic educator who has followed Jesus Christ throughout her life and declares Him her Lord and Savior. She received her degree as Professor of Mathematics from CONSUDEC in Argentina and moved to the United States at the young age of twenty-two, after marrying Mr. Yager, a Vancouver native. They are the parents of two lovely young women.
Sandra began her career in the United States in banking. After four years, she pursued her passion to teach, and accepted a position at Jason Lee Middle School in Vancouver as a math teacher, then moved over to open Skyview High School as an assistant principal. Later, Sandra was appointed principal of the Vancouver School of Arts and Academics (VSAA).
In 2000, she had the opportunity to move to the Hockinson School District, where she helped the community transform Hockinson into a K-12 school district through the opening of their high school. She devoted her heart to creating a high school built on the foundations of rigor, relevance, and relationships. Hockinson High School opened in 2003 and graduated its first senior class in 2006. That project will forever mark Mrs. Yager as a respected leader and team player by her staff and community. In 2010, she moved to the Longview School District and became the principal of Monticello Middle School, a state-designated “low performing school”, where she helped create a culture committed to improving student performance – academically, emotionally, and relationally. There was only one job which could persuade her to leave, and that job moved her back to Clark County in 2011, when she assumed the role of Superintendent of the Hockinson School District.
After twenty-five years in public education, God called Sandra to be a part of Christian education, where she can openly share her passions – her love for Jesus Christ, family, and education. She will continue the vision of Cornerstone Christian Academy for Learning & Leadership by preparing Christian servant leaders who can excel in the world and rise to positions of significant influence to advance the kingdom of God. Sandra was recently appointed as a non-voting board member to work with the CCA board, along with community and national leaders, to help design, roll out, and reproduce cost-effective, scalable Christian schools of excellence that can be replicated nationally and internationally.
