Mr. Rubin

This is my ninth year at Palms. I feel very fortunate to be teaching here and to be a part of a wonderful teaching team with Ms. Mullen. I have been a California teacher for the past 34 years. My background is in teaching math, science, and computer education. Currently, I teach two magnet classes of math,  two classes of science, and two electives. As I will update this site often, please check back. I am always pleased to hear from parents or students. Feel free to email me and I will respond as quickly as I can. My email address is lrubin03@lausd.net.

Very soon you will receive an email invitation to join Google Classroom. When a parent joins Google Classroom, "they will receive regular automatic email summaries for each of their students." Parents can choose the frequency of emails, or unsubscribe at any time. The invitation will be sent to the email address you sent me in the Course Outline. If you wish to receive an invitation to more than one email address please let me know and I can add the address. Many assignments will be completed through Google Classroom.
