My name is Amy Kassorla Weisberg and I have been teaching in the Los Angeles Unified School District for 43 years. I am a proud LAUSD and LACOE Teacher of the Year 2019. I have been teaching at Topanga Elementary Charter School for 28 years. The Developmental Kindergarten Program, now officially part of the LAUSD Transitional Kindergarten Program, is very important and special to me. I love working with the youngest students and watching them grow and change during the year.
I have taught Pre-K, Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade but Transitional Kindergarten is my favorite. I have a B.A. degree in Sociology from UCSB and my Multiple Subjects teaching credential from CSUN, a Language Development Specialist credential and Master’s Degree in Education Administration with an Emphasis on Organizational Leadership. In the summer of 2010 I had the wonderful opportunity of being part of the California Reading and Literature Project Invitational Leadership at UCLA, Center X and was a Teacher Leader with the Project.
I have my own business, CompleteTeach (www.completeteach.com, Facebook.com/CompleteTeach) which is an educational business offering consulting, presenting and tutoring as well as a book for parents and children, How to Have the Best Super-Duper School Year Ever! I have a monthly column in The Topanga Mountain Messenger. For information about this, please email at: email@example.com.
I was married for 34 years and my husband Gary passed away in April 2016. I have 3 daughters (and a son-in-law) age 38, 33 and 31 and a 6 year old granddaughter and a 2 year-old grandson. My daughter Kimberly graduated from UCLA as a theater major and is now working as the Vice-President of People Operations in technology, my daughter Nicole graduated UCSC as a music major and is a music producer and supervisor, and my youngest daughter Danielle is a graduate of UCI and works in television, currently as a Writers' Assistant/writer.
I hope this helps you to get to know me a little. I have experienced many of the challenges you are going through or will go through with your children and if I can be of any help, in any way, please let me know.
Mrs. Amy Weisberg
