Luis Arevalo – Lead Teacher - First Grade

Luis is a Loyola Marymount University graduate at both undergraduate and masters level. Luis firmly believes in an educational philosophy of social justice and education for the whole child/person. Luis was a Founding Lead Teacher at KIPP Iluminar Academy in East Los Angeles. As part of the first common core team to open a school in East Los Angeles, Luis learned many leadership and community building skills in his time at this crucial stage of the school. Luis is no stranger to the workshop model of instruction, having also worked at Celerity Dyad Charter School. During Luis' six years of teaching, he believes that every child can learn and flourish, and there should be no excuse for mediocrity. Luis is very excited to become a part of an organization that can offer him the opportunity to challenge himself, his students, and be a member of a truly collaborative learning environment. When not at CWC, you will find Luis running or spending time with his wife and seven-month son.
