The Learning Choice Academy (TLC) opened a second Think Big Reading Room, this time at their Temecula site. With special thanks to donors Eleni and Wolfgang Gagon, administrators, teachers, parents, and student helpers were enthusiastic in creating their new, world traveler-themed Think Big Reading Room. The diverse team at TLC witnessed their hard work pay off when the beautiful room was revealed to their students, parents and community members on September 18. The Opening Ceremony started with TLC student and 2018 Carson Scholar Maryann Roybal playing the violin and then sharing with the audience how reading inspired her to become a dedicated musician. Following her amazing performance, a group of students shared how Dr. Carson’s “Think Big” philosophy has helped them become successful students in-and-out of the classroom. The newly transformed office has 6 clocks, each one set to the local time of a city abroad, overlooking the shelves of hundreds of books that spark the interest of students ranging from 3rd to 12th grade. TLC students may not be able to travel the world just yet, but they surely are getting worldly experience when visiting their new Think Big Reading Room.
In December 2019, the reading room moved to the Learning Choice Academy, La Mesa campus.
