People of Northeast Los Angeles: Ana Chavez

My name is Ana Chavez. I am a preschool teacher for the last twenty years at Kedren Head Start. I am a bilingual teacher, I love to work with the kids. I believe that, that school at this age, in the early years, is very important. It's a challenge because children are changing every single day, but it's just an awesome job. The kids are learning so much.

I travel every single day from La Puente, because I enjoy what I do in this area. I love my community. I believe that there are a lot of challenges, but they're awesome. They're awesome challenges, because you see how these kids are becoming somebody.
