Wonderland Elementary
Los Angeles Unified
Los Angeles, CA
“Wonderland Elementary aims to provide quality public education that nurtures the whole child for the diverse ethnic and socio-economic landscape of Los Angeles through its magnet program. The SEL Innovation Awards for Teachers will support our Korean immigrant population. Wonderland uses Way of Council to create a culture of communication, collaboration, problem solving and reflection through the power of one’s voice. It develops life-long skills by reflecting upon the other’s points of view and creating positive changes to conflict. The award will help fund materials and translations into the Korean language to create a more inclusive community.”
