The beginning of the school year is such a special time for students, families and their teachers at The Help Group. Instructors and staff have been busy prepping their classrooms and planning their curriculum for incoming students. This week, on our Sherman Oaks campus, teachers hosted a family welcome in an effort to ease the transition back to school. Help Group educators had this to say about what they are most looking forward to this upcoming academic year:


I am excited to be back at school and eager to support our students as they transition into their new classes.  It’s always wonderful to see our students reunite with their friends, and to introduce them to their new classmates. I’m looking forward to getting started on this year’s new curriculum and working with students to ensure their success.”

– Teacher Specialist at Bridgeport, Shana Sadowsky


It’s such a great opportunity to be back with a new and fresh start with our amazing returning students and the new additions to our Sunrise family.”

– Teacher Specialist at Sunrise, Gina Bardin


I’m very excited to build lasting memories for our early learners, and to create new experiences in collaboration with my Early Education co-workers, so that our students can learn, grow and blossom this coming school year.”

–  Early Education Teacher Specialist, Varduhi Shirinyan


I am looking forward to be back for the new school year and seeing how much my students have grown over the summer vacation. I’m eagerly anticipating many new experiences for my students and opportunities for all of us to grow and learn together!
