I was born and raised in Mexico. My parents and I came to the United States when I was 8 years old. I am a dreamer who was given the opportunity to obtain legal status in this country. If it wasn't because of that opportunity, I would not be working at Santee.
My first experience working with kids came when I was taking an early child development class in high school. We had to go over to the high school daycare and interact with the children in different activities. I enjoyed been around the children so much, I decided to apply at the daycare and got hired.
I started subbing for FMSD in May of 2017 at different school sites. I was offered to sub at Santee and later found out that the position to stay permanent was open, so I took it. I really enjoy watching the kids' growth, not only academically but also personally, so much so that I'm currently trying to pursue a career in early child education.
