Instructor, Santa Maria High

"When I came to the US, I did not come to study; I came looking for a job to send money to my parents and younger siblings in Jalisco. All the time I was an AHC student, I was living in my older brother's house and kept working to support my family and save for tuition when I transfer to a university. Now that I have graduated with a master's degree and have been a teacher for eight years."
