I currently teach the ED class. This is a multi-grade (6th-8th) and multi-subject (ELA, Math, History & Science) Special Day Class. My students have their core subjects with me and the remaining classes in a general education setting. I am originally from New Mexico and when I applied for a teaching position in the LAUSD, I applied to be an ED teacher. I am where I want to be working with the students that I think need me. Why? My students provide me a daily challenge and an opportunity to prove that ALL students can learn. I believe I am making an impact in their lives and I need them perhaps, more than they need me. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!!!
