Two Magnet Retirements!
Most parents who have had children in her class know that Mrs. Wheelock is retiring after 32 years of teaching, but did you know that our magnet coordinator, Mrs Jacobs, is also retiring?
It is easy to see the impact teachers have on our children's education, but Mrs Jacobs has also had an outsized influence, working quietly behind the scenes to support students and parents alike. To be perfectly frank, there have been KAMPA events and ideas over the years that have rubbed certain LAUSD officials the wrong way due to being too out-of-the-box. Mrs Jacbos has stepped in time and time again to work the system, donate her time, and quite honestly, take the arrows that have been shot our way due to the impatient nature of a certain KAMPA president. She does this all willingly and in an incredibly supportive manner. Her fundamental decision point has always been to answer this question: Does this benefit the special needs of our magnet children?
While you may not have interacted as much with Mrs Jacbos as you have with the teachers, please consider taking a moment to drop her an e-mail thanking her for her dedication and congratulating her on the next phase of her life.
If you would like to e-mail her after the school year, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will provide her personal e-mail address. This applies to Mrs. Wheelock as well
