Ms. Jimenez has had an interest and passion for working with school age students since she was in her early years of middle school. Knowing that many of her relatives did not have the same opportunities in attending schools that help prepare scholars for college, Ms. Jimenez made it her mission at a young age to help those who need support towards their pursuit in higher education. Ms. Jimenez volunteered at her local elementary school for over a year during her high school years. Shortly after graduation, Ms. Jimenez attended UC Merced to major in Psychology and Education. She attended UC Merced for two years and decided to return to Los Angeles to gain field experience in her major. Ms. Jimenez will be attending California State University, Los Angeles to finish her last two years of college. She plans to receive her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Early Education. Ms. Jimenez joins the Equitas team with over two years of experience in
childcare and over 6 years working with Kinder through 4th grade scholars. She has a great passion and dedication to teach the scholars of the Pico Union area. Ms. Jimenez is excited to be part of the Equitas team where high goals are set for scholars to achieve excellence and be well prepared to attend college. Ms. Jimenez has a high belief that every scholar will attend and graduate from a four-year college or university.
