One month into the 2015-2016 school year, students, teachers, and parents have settled into their routines. By this point in the year, the nervous excitement of the new year has faded and transitioned into the hustle and bustle of day to day activities. TUSD serves the families of nearly 25,000 students and our primary goal is to maximize the potential of each and every one of our students.
Student success is made possible through the collaborative efforts of a District community. Our teachers, classified employees, and administrators work in unison to ensure that each student is receiving the educational experiences they need to achieve academic success. Recently we had the opportunity to recognize the crème de la crème of our already exemplary employees – I would like to once again congratulate our Employees of the Year Graciela Basso, Amy Argento, Diane Judt, Jason Rosenthal, Ricardo Villa, Nancy Roy, Ruben Soliz, Arlene Sato and a special shout out to Carol Grossi our representative for the Los Angeles County Department of Education Teacher of the Year Program. Carol was also voted as one of the Top 16 educators at the County level, further advancing Torrance Unified’s reputation as a premier educational institution.
In my ten year tenure as Superintendent, I am so proud of all that we have accomplished together. The teamwork, dedication, and strategic leadership are evident throughout the district.
