After leaving his home in Barstow, California Rothinny Honghin found his passion for early childhood education as an undergraduate when he served two years of experience in Jumpstart as a corps member and team leader. He helped with curriculum at Marina Early Education Center and The Jeffree Foundation. He also interned at UCLA Infant Development Program during his senior year. Rothinny graduated from UCLA in 2018 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Applied Developmental Psychology. Since then, he has pursued a career in early childhood education starting as a primary teacher at LMUCC to this day. He strives to create challenging, inclusive, and representative curriculum to stimulate critical thinking skills and discussions. Rothinny believes these early critical years of development are essential for strengthening the children's intrinsic desire to learn, grow, and build a benevolent community with their current and future peers.
