Violeta’s story

A Huge Accomplishment


This is a first for us at Willenberg…a student who has accomplished such a feat. Her story is so inspiring!

The faculty at Willenberg Career and Transition Center, LAUSD, are bursting with pride for Violeta!

While a student in their Transition program and attending Project SEARCH full time for employment preparation, AND while working two days a week at Brighter Days Montessori School, Violeta enrolled in a college class at Harbor Community College.

She recently took her final exam and passed! She has now completed all 12  units required for work in Child Development classes for nursery/preschools. It was a huge accomplishment and one that is shared with a team of ‘cheerleaders’ who were there whenever she was thinking of quitting. 

Congratulations to Violeta!
