Teacher Appreciation Week Spotlight

Above, Karen Gross Tomlin, left, and Marianna Calvillo are among the 3,500 substitute teachers serving L.A. Unified schools.

Teacher and Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-13, and LAUSD Daily is celebrating the classroom heroes who work every day to educate, lead, mentor and inspire the students of L.A. Unified. Each day this week, we will profile a teacher or substitute teacher selected by their Local District administrators as an example of the highly skilled and dedicated professionals who make up our teaching corps. Today, we feature Marianna Calvillo, a substitute teacher in Local District East; and Karen Gross Tomlin, a substitute teacher in Local District West.

Marianna Calvillo

Calvillo joined L.A. Unified’s Substitute Teacher Team in 2012. She already had worked for seven years as a teacher’s assistant at Sheridan Street Elementary School, where she gained valuable experience, respect for the art of teaching and a love of helping others. Calvillo has been lauded by her supervisors for her dedication, caring and “can-do” attitude.

“Ms. Calvillo is prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure her students excel,” said a principal at a Local District East school. Calvillo plans to continue her life of service to youngsters, as either a speech-and-language pathologist or a full-time teacher. Either way, students will benefit from her continued dedication and commitment to doing for others.
