    Los Angeles Unified students, staff, parents and partners champion their communities every day.

    One of the many strengths of Los Angeles Unified is the rich cultural diversity of our students. We celebrate this diversity in the dual language program throughout our District. This week we recognize Mountain View Elementary School teacher Nune Arakelyian for bringing singing, dancing and endless enthusiasm into the classroom every day. Nune's love for teaching and her Armenian heritage provide her students with unique, engaging and memorable experiences in the classroom.
