It is with great sadness that we share news of the sudden passing of one of our faculty members, Dr. Olaiya Aina.
Dr. Aina was a beloved and esteemed member of the CCOE community, having served as a Professor of Early Childhood Education in the Division of Curriculum and Instruction. At the CCOE, he taught primarily graduate courses in early childhood education, served as a graduate program coordinator, and worked as a consultant with both public and private schools. In addition, he was the author of numerous academic publications and delightful children’s books.
- All of his courses will be cancelled for the rest of the week.
- Grief counseling will be made available. Please check with the Dean’s Office concerning any counseling needs - KHD2069 or call 323-343-4300.
- Details regarding memorial arrangements are forthcoming.
- Please join the CCOE community anytime today, February 20, 2018, from noon to 3 p.m. in the Dean’s Conference Room, KHD2076A, to come together and share memories of this wonderful man.
He will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
Welcome to Spring Semester 2018!
I hope your winter break was a restful, renewing, and re-energizing time for you. After our winter “time away,” we can all return to our work ready to enter into this semester with the energy, passion, and vision that embody the faculty, staff, and students of the CCOE.
Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.” And there is much work to be done in Education here in East Los Angeles and nationwide. Education is a civil right and the cornerstone of a democratic society. I know that everyone in the CCOE is collectively engaged in this important work.
Let us rise to King’s challenge to creatively use time for the opportunity to do right. As you explore our website, check out the upcoming CCOE events – like the upcoming Education Career Fair, the Mental and Behavioral Health Conference, and the Gear Up 4LA College Experience Day – find ways to connect with and take part in the creativity in action at the CCOE community.
The CCOE now has a YouTube Channel!
On the new Charter College of Education YouTube Channel you can find videos featuring CCOE programs, events, info session flyers, student testimonials, and very useful tutorials that will walk you through the application process. You might even find a video about our humanoid robot!
