Mr. Kamiya

I started teaching in the Los Angeles Unified School District in 1985.  I taught at Melvin Avenue School in Reseda from 1985 to 1990. In 1986 Melvin Avenue was selected as the first National Blue Ribbon School in the LAUSD. The Blue Ribbon program began in 1982 for secondary schools. Elementary schools were added to the program during the 1985-86 school year. Below is a picture of the commemorative pin we received with the award. 
 
I started my career in Glendale at John Marshall Elementary School. I moved to John Muir Elementary the following year. While at John Muir I started a few traditions that continue today. I arranged the 6th Grade vs. Faculty Softball Game and created the first 6th Grade Promotion Slide Show. I also became the District coach for the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders participating in the Los Angeles County Math Field Day competition. 
 
I joined the staff at Roosevelt during the 2005-06 school year after the year-round school calendar ended at Muir.  Although I was new to the school, I wasn't new to the students because I joined hundreds of former Muir students at Roosevelt. Many of my former 6th graders were now 7th and 8th graders at Roosevelt. They took care of me at Roosevelt the same way I took care of them at Muir. 
 
Over the past 17 years I've helped to develop and maintain the MESA Program and Roosevelt Robotics Club. The MESA and Roosevelt Robotics students have done a great job over the years. The goal of both MESA and Robotics Club is to learn and have fun. Winning awards is not our main goal, but we win them anyway!
