Why do you tutor at CIANA?

I started in December 2015, which was definitely a heightened period, like now, of immigrant rights. It was high on my conscience at the time, and it just happened that it was here in my neighborhood. Working with that kind of community was a good fit. I also like working with kids.

You’ve been here for a while. What’s kept you here?

The kids are really great, and it’s been cool to see the same kids every semester and watch them go into different subjects.

What do you think the Elementary After School Program does for the kids who come here?
