PACCC Educator Highlight

Guadalupe (Lupe) Jimenez began her career at PACCC in 1987 as a substitute teacher at the Ventura Infant-Toddler Center (VITC), now known as Sojourner Truth Child Development Center (STCDC). Lupe has spent her entire career with PACCC at STCDC. Lupe’s longevity and dedication to the center is invaluable. Her positive attitude, loving and nurturing demeanor makes her a friend to all.  Former families return years later and remember Lupe and her presence in their child’s life. A fellow alumni parent recently said, “I will always cherish and appreciate Lupe for taking care of my daughter. It always made me feel better when she was there at drop-off. She just has a beautiful and natural way with children and is truly one of PACCC’s gems.”

In 2011, Lupe was sent a Certificate and personal letter from Anna Eshoo and the Congress of the United States House of Representatives for the outstanding and invaluable service to the community. It is a mystery to Lupe how she was chosen to receive this certificate. All she knows is that a former parent at STCDC initiated her receiving this honor. She was delighted that the greater community formally acknowledged her dedication to the field of Early Childhood Education and Youth Development. She wholeheartedly enjoys working with young children, helping them grow and develop, and building strong, trusting relationships with families.

Lupe has two favorite things about working at PACCC. The first is being with the children each day. Lupe lovingly refers to them as “All my little friends. I’m here for them.” Lupe’s second favorite thing is working with her dedicated team of teachers at STCDC for many years. She shares, “These days it’s rare to have a group of people working together as long as we have. Most of us have been working at STCDC for over 20 years together. We know each other like family; we support each other. She proudly boasts, “If you think about the combined years of experience teaching at PACCC, we have over 100 years together at STCDC. We have watched some of our students grow up and return to us with their own children. It is such a joy to care for generations of children! Lupe believes, “We make this program a great place for children and their families and we do it together and I am proud of us.”
