Trout eggs were delivered!
Thank you Mr. Chambers & Mr. Dees @LBCastingClub volunteers for a safe delivery! We watched as eggs were deposited into our tank. So much nervous excitement. 8 wks of fostering until release! @JLAJaguars #proudtobeLBUSD #TICJLA #TroutInTheClassroomLBUSD
Oh, how I love visiting a college campus. An honor to spend the a.m. w/ the inaugural UCLA Women’s School Leadership Institute cohort talking about leading for equity. @LBSchools is well represented with 3 of our own 🌟 participating - Drs. An, Brown & Johnson. #proudtobeLBUSD
Continuing to build on our previous discussions around equity, bias, inclusion and systemic racism at Bancroft Middle School. Who says you can't have a little fun while delving deep into extremely serious issues? #proudtobeLBUSD #cityoflongbeach #babathestoryteller
