My name is Jennifer Medina. I worked for the LAUSD for over 5 years in their after school program and over 8 years in privately owned schools. I completed Child Development courses at West Los Angeles College and I am looking forward to furthering my education. I believe that each child is special and unique in their own way and that learning in an open and friendly environment is of the utmost importance. I feel that children should be given the necessary tools early on in order to succeed in the future. Not only do I want to encourage learning, but also the love of learning.
