Our guests this morning are Franci Agajanjan, Carmel Madonna and Amy Glasman, instructors at South Bay Adult School.

Franci Agajanjan has taught Parenting classes for 25 years. She began her career after graduating from USC as a Special Ed teacher and is now an Interpreter for the Deaf. She teaches American Sign Language for hearing babies to help them learn to communicate before they start talking. 

Carmel Madonna has been teaching for the past 20 years at the South Bay Adult School and she loves implementing music into the daily routine. 

Carmel teaches a class on Thursdays at different parks each week called Music and Movement in the Park and brings a basket of books, art projects and musical instruments for children to play. Her students march and dance while getting to know different neighborhoods in the South Bay. Carmel enjoys gardening, books and the great outdoors.

Amy Glasman has been teaching for over 20 years and has been an educator at the South Bay Adult School for almost 10 years now. She takes great joy in being part of a child’s first years of school. She originally grew up in Minnesota and has enjoyed living in Hermosa Beach for the past 15 years.  

This morning, we’ll be discussing some of the programs the South Bay Adult School offers the community, in particular, the annual The Teddy Bear Picnic.

The kids get to sing and learn sign language while enjoying a picnic under the stars with their Teddy bears.
