The highly dedicated Carlson Home, Hospital, Choa Teachers, Administrators, and Staff work towards one common goal. That goal is the whole-child-approach for academic success. These are the most caring, generous, inspiring, mindful, loving educators, and staff I have ever come across in my scholar career. Like Mr. Joe Salvemini used to say, Carlson is the gem of LAUSD! I am so honored to work among the best in the education field. If your child is receiving instructional services from a Carlson teacher, rest assured, your child is in good hands.
