JI Global History

Jessica is from the Bronx and her family is from the Dominican Republic. She went to Pomona College near Los Angeles, California, and is currently finishing her master's degree at Fordham University in Manhattan. She knew that she wanted to be a teacher when she moved from the Bronx to attend private school in California. She missed her home and wanted to come back to help her community.  Her favorite thing about CLIHS is when she gets to spend quality time with students during lunch and during Saturday Learning Series.  One thing that she loves to do outside of CLIHS is travel! She has lived in the Dominican Republic and Italy for a few months each. One of her goals is to visit every country in Latin America.
