Nghia in the Denise Louie International District Full Day Classroom.

“What began as a volunteering opportunity turned into a series of unexpected results. With the help of Jumpstart, I discovered my true passion to become a teacher. As a result I made changes to my major to achieve my goal of becoming an educator and working as a Head Start preschool teacher. Upon graduating, as many graduates do, I began to look for a job. The first place I applied to was the Denise Louie Education Center – International District, which was where I had devoted my four years of service as a Corps Member. They gladly accepted me as a Lead Teacher in their PM classroom where I am excited to work with children every day. Now it is my turn to act as a mentor for the new Jumpstart members that provide services in my classroom twice a week.”
