Ms. Juares was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Growing up she has always loved volunteering and helping others. Ms. Juares volunteered three summers at Queen Anne Recreational Center for their summer camp program in which she developed a passion for teaching and working with kids. As a little girl, Ms. Juares always wanted to be a teacher. She was inspired and drawn to teaching because of the impact her professors and mentors had on her at such a young age. Ms. Juares is currently pursuing her education at Los Angeles Trade Tech for registered nursing but now wants to pursue a career in child development. She absolutely loves working with children and is excited to see them grow and achieve their potential. This is Ms. Juares’ first year at Equitas, but she is determined to give scholars all the proper tools they will need to prepare for college. During Ms. Juares’ free time she loves painting, hiking, and volunteering in any way she can.
