At KIPP SoCal, we believe in the power of highly effective teachers and leaders to see, develop and inspire the greatest potential in each KIPPster. Our schools offer a safe, structured and nurturing environment through which our teachers can foster meaningful relationships built on love, empathy, compassion and respect. As we learn from each other and with each other, we establish a culture of trust that helps our KIPPsters develop a lifetime love of learning.
We sat down with Emily Barclay, our amazing music teacher at KIPP Raíces Academy and gained some powerful insight into how our National Blue Ribbon and California Distinguished School, as a community, nurtures the whole child.
