Thelma Melendez de Santa Ana Teacher Message for Teacher Appreciation Week

Thelma served as the Education Advisor to Mayor Garcetti and is now a LAUSD Senior Administrator.

She credits Mrs. Silverman’s care and attention to each student’s needs for her own success today.

Their lasting relationship demonstrates the truest form of partnership between teacher and student that LAEP has promoted in its work since 1984.

To honor these women, consider attending or purchasing a tribute ad. Details in banner to left.
