Jesus is a proud member of the Harvard Teacher Fellows, who will be teaching tenth-grade World History at Leadership Public Schools, Richmond (in California). He graduated with an A.B. in Government, with a focus on Latin America and Education. During his time in HTF, Jesus hopes to help youth find their voice in and outside the classroom. Moreover, his goal is to create a safe learning environment in which his students can take risks and succeed. His passion for teaching and learning is what inspired him to return to high school to teach. Jesus’ eventual goal is to work on connecting students to college access resources that can set them up to achieve.
