“I started my journey with the Gene Juarez Academy as a student. The idea of being an educator never crossed my mind when I was a student. When I was asked about being an educator, I was not interested. Once I started working at the academy at the front desk, my mind quickly changed. The positive impact that I was able to make in the students’ life was just amazing. Every position at the academy makes a difference in the students’ lives. Being an educator, I get to meet so many different people who all share the same goal I had. The feeling of helping others reach their goal is indescribable. Being able to share my knowledge and passion for the industry is amazing! I love being an educator.” KaShayla, South Campus Educator
