Behind strong leaders is a team of support. That’s how Robin Inlow helps Alpha Omega Academy with her position as continuous improvement coordinator. As she works with projects with the director, coordinates AOA’s accreditations, and manages AOA’s achievement testing, she says no two days are the same. A native of Washington State, Inlow graduated from Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and from the University of Birmingham in England with a Master of Science Degree in International Development and Poverty Reduction.
Homeschooled K-7 and a Christian school student for grades 8-12, Inlow is very familiar with Christian education and understands the experiences of AOA distance learning students. Self-described as compassionate, driven, and determined, Inlow married in the fall of 2010 and had her daughter in 2016 after struggling with infertility. She loves to travel, and says she and her husband hope in the future to travel on a mission trip abroad for several years. As a college student, she studied for a semester abroad in Wales and also traveled to Palestine and Israel on a human rights tour.
Inlow says she lives her life by the motto from Ghandi: “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” If she were to choose a different career, she jokes that she’d like to be a superhero and hopes to make a positive difference in the world. If she could change anything, Inlow would have stayed involved in gymnastics and ice skating as a child, and would’ve actually practiced her piano and voice lessons. Her favorite food is her grandparents’ grilled flank steak, and her favorite movie is Mr. Holland’s Opus. Inlow says she hopes to be remembered as someone who always did what she could to help the less fortunate, and who inspired others to do the same. She adds, “I want people to be able to see the light of God shining through me.”
