Veteran Teacher, author and lifelong learner Timolin R. Langin has served as a public-school teacher, Program Coordinator and TOSA teacher in an under-resourced community for over 2 decades. Timolin believes there is a direct correlation between education and economics and has used this philosophy to inform her teaching and development of supplemental curriculum her entire career. Her tenure as an Educator began in Inglewood Unified School District as a first-grade teacher where she inspired parents, school staff, including fellow teachers to maintain and accept no less than the rigorous, yet achievable academic standards as mandated by the State of California.
Her classes consistently scored in the 90th percentiles in the tested area of reading and mathematics. She is particularly proud of her first class where 13 out of 20 were boys and the entire class scored in the 100th percentile in Reading and 99th percentile in Math.
Timolin has a B.A. from UCLA and Masters in Teaching with emphasis in Curriculum Development from Cal State Dominguez, and coursework in Educational Leadership from UC Irvine. Her mission is to foster high academic and professional achievement by infusing leadership, sound money management and entrepreneurial activities into the academic curriculum in a collaborative, congenial, constructive and cooperative learning environment. Timolin also wants and creates opportunities for students to have fun. She teaches learning is fun.
Timolin currently teaches in the K-12 Independent Study program in Inglewood Unified School District, where she is able to impact the lives of mostly high school students, as they prepare for college and their journey beyond high school.
Timolin is the daughter of a father who holds a Master’s degree in Education and also started his career as an elementary teacher and eventually became Assistant Superintendent in Bolivar County School District. Her mother currently teaches at Valley State College and has a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology. Teaching runs in her family!
