  • Hello from Los Angeles

    • This will be my first year teaching 4th grade after 17 years of teaching 5th grade. I teach in a small visual and performing arts school within LAUSD- the second largest school district in the US. I am a bit apprehensive to be starting the school year remotely and am working to make the experience as engaging and successful as possible for my learners.
    • I grew up in rural Nova Scotia, but lived and worked in Winnipeg and Edmonton for 20 years as a psychiatric nurse and then as a social worker. Teaching is my 3rd career. I love teaching math and finding ways to make it fun for my students.

    Welcome Pamela. I transplanted Canadian? How did you end up in LA? We’re pumped to work with you here in the Academy!
