LGTA represents and advocates for 184 teachers, nurses, psychologists, resource specialists, speech/language pathologists, and state pre-school teachers. While we are small in comparison to many of our counterparts, through working together across the district, we continue to provide the quality academic experience for each student, each day that our community of families support. Because we are a small district we have the benefit of knowing our colleagues at each site and networking on a regular basis. Our district offers an atmosphere that can not be found in a large district. That is why the majority of teachers average between 19-34 years in their service as a Lemon Grove Educator.
We are pleased to be part of the East County Teachers UNISERV which is a local collaboration association for members of four east county teacher associations affiliated with the California Teachers Association and the National Education Association.
