VIDEO: Answering the Call to Mentorship

Over 15 years ago, Jose Garza’s mentor responded to his desire to become a professor: “Jose, what schools really need are male Hispanic teachers. There are a lot of kids out there who would benefit from your presence. You would be a great role model.”

While initially discouraged about becoming a professor, Jose listened to this call and began his journey towards mentorship.

In this video, Jose discusses his career as a charter school teacher and first-year teacher mentor at Partnership to Uplift Communities Schools (PUC) in Los Angeles.
