Working for LAUSD was one of the highlights of my life.
Teacher (Former Employee) – South Central, Woodland Hills, East Los Angeles – November 2, 2017
I was forced to retire from LAUSD after 30 years because of budget
cuts that closed the Adult Education Division. Working there was one of the highlights of my life. I made many academic friends and contacts.
Over this 30 year period, I was assigned to many school sites throughout the district. I learned how to process the enrolling student, assess student academic needs, and provide the necessary documentation.
I enjoyed providing Basic Education, Literacy, and Employment Preparation to countless adult and high school students . It was rewarding to watch them grow in knowledge and application and achieve their goals. Seeing adults read for the first time was outstanding.
LAUSD gave me the time, tools and training to effectively teach students from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. I was able to help them move to higher learning, obtain a GED, get a job or promotion.
Freedom to conduct your classes. Many school holidays. Ongoing training, Short work hours.
Always a need for supplies.
