Culver City Unified School District teachers, staff and administrators kicked off the 2022-2023 school year with a special Welcome Back event that included an inspirational message from keynote speaker Dr. Kikanza Nuri-Roberts, who encouraged educators to “Make a Difference One Conversation at a Time.”
The event also recognized the District’s Teacher of the Year, Robyn Johnson of Farragut Elementary School; Classified Employee of the Year, Jo’Nellia Guinn of Culver City High School; and Management Employee of the Year, Alva Diaz, who is the Assistant Director of Financial Services (all pictured above).
Teachers and staff were treated to breakfast and given T-shirt emblazoned with Superintendent Quoc Tran’s vision for the future. He shared his vision with the CCUSD family, saying that it includes everything from a focus on sustainability, equity and inclusion to a commitment to the arts and technology.
All told, it was an uplifting, inspirational way for teachers, administrators and staff to kick off the new year!
