Friends of Reed – Humanities Academy

Ms. Bobrosky-Kinsey (History)

8th Grade U.S. History.

Ms. Kinsey grew up at Walter Reed– her father has been at Reed for 38 years. She was inspired by the teachers she was surrounded by, and knew early on that teaching was what she wanted to do. After getting her B.A in English at CSUN in 2008, she had experience in several schools before getting lucky enough to land a teaching position at Reed. Originally starting as the Culinary Academy’s English/ History teacher, she is happy to be teaching in the Humanities Academy, following the greats like Gold and Eskander (two of the amazing teachers who started the academy and have since retired)!

Her website is www.msbobsclass.com
Parents can email her at rachel.bobrosky@lausd.net

6th Grade Pali Camp

Posted by on Aug 4, 2018 in 6th GRADE, E V E N T S, Field Trips / Enriched Learning | 0 comments

Humanities Academy offers an overnight field trip at every grade level. For 6th grade, that trip is to Pali Camp, located in the San Bernardino Mountains near Lake Arrowhead. Pali Camp is not only an educational experience, meeting some of our science standards, but it is also a trip where students get a chance to meet the kids in their academy away from school and bond with them on a personal level. Beyond that, it is also a time where they are met with individual challenges, team building, and have an opportunity to overcome and grow alongside their school community. The trip is lead by Ms. Siminski along with the other 6th grade Humanities teachers, and has become a truly wonderful experience for our 6th graders to share.
