What attracted you to EP?

The resilience of our latino community. The programs that support students to a non tradicional way. The possibilities to support families that just came to this country and don’t understand the language, the culture, the values and the possibilities to support them in their goals and be able to reach out them. EP is a unique place that honors and validates the human side of people. We relate with our community with love, compassion, empty, understanding and commitment to always look for our inner and intrinsic human values.

What’s the best part of your job?

To make a meaningful impact in the life of a child or adult. To provide a safe place where people can try new things without fear of being judged. To laugh and have fun and at the same time learn

How does your passion align with EP’s vision?

EP’s is a place where we thing out of the box. We are a non-traditional school setting that takes challenges as opportunities to growth and succeed. EP’s leaders and staff have an amazing love, passion and commitment to support other people. We know what it feels to be an immigrants and had a lot of challenges. We know how oppression – such as racism, poverty, discrimination, etc.has impacted our loved ones and have a serious commitment to never give up on our community. We believe in the inner values and strengths of our community and are eager to provide the best service for our community to thrive!
