even when he is old he will not depart from it."

ALL ABOUT ME
Welcome to Saint Jerome Preschool 2022- 2023 school year! I am excited to begin my new journey and be a part of the St. Jerome family-
My name is Guadalupe Tino (“Lupe” for short). My two brothers and I are the children of Salvadoran immigrants, raised in a Catholic household, and constantly striving to make our parents proud. I received my B.A. in political science from San Diego State and I also hold a teaching permit. Promptly after graduation I started my journey in the field of education. During my five year tenure with the Los Angeles Unified School District, I had the opportunity to build a solid foundation and was surrounded by mentors who stoked my passion for education. Having worked as a teacher’s aide for several schools, I bring proven experience in working with children across different backgrounds, including children with special needs.
My brothers and I were first generation college students. I have two brothers - Cesar, my younger brother, is currently attending Cal State Fullerton and Cesar, my older brother, is a recent graduate from Santa Clara University School of Law. And yes, they both have the same name!
Growing up with a father who spent over three decades in the field of early education, my mission for shaping young minds is guided by a desire that extends beyond the classroom. I hope to instill values and lessons in the children that they can carry with them beyond my classroom. I am excited to carry on the legacy of serving as an educator and consider myself blessed to be part of the SJS family!
