Jocelyn was born and raised in Mexico City. She came to the United States 25 years ago and has lived in North County. She first came to High Tech High when she was looking for an innovative teaching style for her younger brother and sister to prosper from. Seven years later both of her younger siblings have graduated and are now contributing to our community in the medical and law fields. She holds a master’s degree in Pedagogía from the Universidad Autónoma de México, and a certification from the San Diego State University. Jocelyn is a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and recently completed a program in Family Engagement in Education at Harvard University, and a proud Undocually Educator. Jocelyn has extensive experience in community leadership, communications, and parent engagement, serving in various volunteer roles at the Consulate of Mexico, San Diego Department of Education, and Migrant Education. She has been with High Tech High since 2011 serving as the outreach coordinator. The main focus of her work involves assisting Spanish-speaking families by guiding them through the educational system and by sharing the unique teaching styles of HTH with the community. She advocates for diversity, as it helps students create a valuable connection with their identity and surrounding communities. She is passionate about her work and finds it rewarding to see that her help has made a difference in the lives of the individuals she has helped through her work. When not at work she enjoys spending the day with her family outdoors, at amusement parks, at family carnes asadas or enjoys being part of the audience for Mexican Folkloric dancer, gymnast, cheerleader ten-year-old daughter, and toddler girl!
