Mr. Larkin Mr. Larkin is VAPA’s teacher of the month . He teaches chemistry for our small school. This is Mr. Larkin’s first year teaching at South East High School. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, where he studied chemical engineering. He feels the best advice to give students is “To work harder than you think you can and ask questions.” One of the reasons he decided to become a teacher was that he believes all students can succeed and wanted to see it happen in Los Angeles. Mr. Larkin would like the see the student population to know “that I’m never going to give up on my students.” -Olivia Gallegos, Reporter
