My name is Jeffrey we’re at the UCLA
Community School and I’m here for work right now. I enrolled here as a ninth-grader and graduated here at the Community School my senior year. It’s a
home I always come back to. – (Spanish) I’m a teacher assistant with Den 1,
that’s kindergarten and first grade. These are students that need more, more support.
More someone who they can relate to as well. All right guys I’m gonna take
attendance today. (off camera) – Why? Why?! (singing) ¡Hola amigo! Cómo está usted?! I see myself in the little kids in that I grew up in
Koreatown. Also, like, some of them are are immigrants like myself, so I know that I
can connect in a way with with their experiences. “Could” Oh now I get you! Yes! Good job. I like that I’m always able to reach out to my former teachers, maybe use some of
their tips and suggestions for myself. I still can’t get over the fact that you
want to be a teacher it’s so exciting and so humbling.
– I actually so I actually decided social science because of you and
Ms. Salinas’ class. Jeffrey you’re gonna be an amazing teacher and like I said it’s it’s so wild that you are going into education. I still remember when you were
a student and you were so passionate about social justice issues. You’re one
of our homegrown students, you’re homegrown at UCLA, the big UCLA, and now you’re
gonna give back in the ultimate way.
