Where can you find fresh produce from local growers, crafts from area artisans, live music and delicious gourmet food for breakfast and lunch — all in one place? Just head to the corner of Girard Avenue and Genter Street in La Jolla on Sundays for the La Jolla Open Aire Market, open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The market has become a tradition for so many, but most who attend probably don’t know how it started. That little-known fact is what sets it apart from all other farmers markets in San Diego: It was started as a fundraiser for La Jolla Elementary School 21 years ago.
La Jolla resident Mary Sue Lindsay knows her way around a classroom. She was a teacher for 20 years and a school principal for another 20 — in elementary, middle and high school. Hoping to use these decades of experience further, she decided to become an education consultant to help parents, students, teachers and administers solve problems that arise at school.
Learning by doing is something most educational experts know is effective, but few schools fully incorporate the teaching style into their classrooms. Not so at The Children’s School in La Jolla. Founded in 1972, the school emphasizes a “learn by doing” method to foster curiosity and encourage intellectual growth. It’s one of several facets of The Children’s School’s progressive teaching methods.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time for recognizing the magnitude of mental health issues in present-day society. For Dr. Azmaira Maker, the founder of Aspiring Families Center for Mental Health and Wellness, the designation doesn’t quite apply, since she and her team address such issues 12 months of the year. Maker established her practice in the Del Mar/Carmel Valley area 12 years ago to provide comprehensive, integrative and holistic mental health assessments and therapy to adults, children and especially families. Maker holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of experience. Her team of eight therapists and doctors offer a wide range of treatments, including equine-assisted therapy, and nutritional-and-fitness services for her clients.
When Dr. Ryan Hoffman started working at La Jolla Dentistry with Dr. Joe D’Angelo and Dr. Ashley Olson in August 2017, he knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be. Now, two years later, he is officially a partner with the practice at 1111 Torrey Pines Road, Suite 101 in La Jolla.
