Carla Colindres

Hello Maya Angelou Family,  I am proud to be teaching Algebra 1 and Pre-AP Algebra 1 to our students.  I have been teaching at Maya Angelou since the school open, but I actually started teaching at Los Angeles Academy Middle School.  I love the community I work in-it is my second home.  

A little about myself-I am and English Learner, a product of LAUSD, and first in my family to graduate from college.  I am the oldest of 3, my family migrated to Virginia and I am the only one that stayed in California.  Since working at Dr. Maya Angelou I have become a dog mom to two beautiful rescue pit bulls- but in reality they have brought so much happiness to my life. 

I know that many of the students might not love math but I am here to offer all the support that they will need so that it is less scary for them, and more enjoyable.  I look forward to meeting each and every one of you, and working together so that our students can have a very successful year. 

If you have any questions please reach out to me.  I am here for you and your students.
