Mr. Daniel Kim
Welcome to Room 103!
My name is Mr. Daniel Kim and education has always been my passion. Back in college I use to be involved with the Jumpstart Head Start Program. Also, I worked 5 years for Woodcraft Rangers, Stanley Ranch Camp. It’s a camp for foster care and inner city children in Los Angeles. After college I moved to Brazil, Sao Paulo to get to reconnect with my family and my cultural roots. (I was born in Brazil). I taught English for 2 years and did missionary work all over Brazil. I also worked 2 years as the Head Site Director of the YMCA A.S.E.S. after school program. Currently, I’m completing my Master’s Program specializing in students with Moderate and Severe disabilities at California State University of Dominguez Hills. This is my fifth year teaching at Village Glen West School.

“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him/her to learn by creating curiosity, he/ she will continue the learning process as long as he/she lives.” ~ Clay P. Bedford

CLIMB
CREATE-LEARN-IMPROVE-MOTIVATE-BELIEVE
The CLIMB Program is designed for students, grades 6 – 12. The curriculum in the CLIMB program consists of similar academic subjects taught in the Core Program, but is modified both in range and depth. Most of the students meet criteria to take the California Modified Assessment (CMA).
Students’ schedules are individualized for their own specific learning needs. It is possible for students in the Climb Program to take classes in the Core (diploma track) program or Bridge program as appropriate. At the end of high school students within the Climb Program are awarded a Certificate or Completion. Many students go on into the work force, or attend Community College, a transition program or job training program.
