School Leader, KIPP LA Prep
KIPP LA Prep is currently led by Monica Madrigal. Monica did not always envision herself in education. It wasn’t until an influential English teacher in high school recommended she join the educator training nonprofit, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), that she began to think about education. She fell in love with helping students, and witnessing those “aha” moments created a passion for teaching. After she completed her studies, she returned to her own community and joined the KIPP LA Prep Team & Family.
