Carla Sanger featured in Youth Today!
LA's BEST President & CEO Carla Sanger was recently interviewed by Gary Gately, a writer for Youth Today, on her LA's BEST career, her days in the classroom, how her father influenced her to become a teacher, and much more.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
"Sanger, a lifelong educator and a pioneering advocate for out-of-school programs, reflects on her father’s influence.
'He was the first to help me to understand that when you know the streets that the school’s located on, and you know the community, and you know the families and you know the children, you’re going to have much more engagement to create the culture and climate for children to learn,' Sanger said. 'So my father was a prince among educators.'
Sanger has applied her father’s wisdom well in a career spanning more than 45 years, most recently as president and CEO of the acclaimed nonprofit LA’s BEST (Better Educated Students for Tomorrow) After School Enrichment Program in Los Angeles. Sanger, 69, announced in May she will retire from LA’s BEST at the end of November.
