My name is Diana Chavez. I was born in Valle de Allende, Chihuahua but raised in Colorado.I am a history major and elementary education minor at Metropolitan State College of Denver.I plan to graduate by 2015. This being my second year in college I have learned manynew things that make me a great asset to Journey Through our Heritage as they to me.This will be my first year with Journey Through our Heritage and from whatI have seen in the past is a great program.I cannot wait to start working at my selected high school and begin promoting self-awareness of one’scultures and self worth to our community. Will work together as a team so at the end we can competewith other high schools and not only teach our values, but learn others values as well.For my non-profit organization I will be working at Escuela Guadalupe inMrs. Arlette Lucero’s art class. I will be assisting her with grades k-2nd grade, \and with this experience I will go a long way.I will one day be teaching as well to similar grades.This will guide me through the simple understanding of children andwhat we as adult need to assist them with.I am very enthusiastic to begin interactions with everyone, not only will I be helpingothers find out who they are but I will also figure new things about myself.
