My Students

Our scholars are an amazing and insightful group of students who will become the leaders of the future. They are a microcosm of the Los Angeles community we live in. Our students come from a wide array of backgrounds (Native American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, African American, Hindu, Asian and Caucasian) and from diverse economic backgrounds and family groupings. They are supported by a strong, creative staff of educators and parents who believe in their ability to impact the world around them in positive and meaningful ways.

Our students are eager to learn and thrive on new, innovative curriculum which has real world applications.

My Project

After 25 years in teaching, I'm always excited to find ways to bring creativity and innovation in my classroom. With this Mindspark Professional Development, I hope to learn how to create a culture of creativity which is centered on innovative thinking, for all my third grade scholars.

I want to learn how to integrate creativity and innovative practices within my curriculum, standards and units of study, while cultivating students’ creative and innovative problem-solving skills.

I hope to learn how to use creativity to adapt the culture, structure and processes in my classroom, so I can spark a much more creative, productive and engaging workspace.
