Administration, Extended Day Team
Extended Daycare Assistant
Alonzo Hernandez has lived in the East Bay all his life. He is currently working on an A.A. in sociology and hopes to transfer to UC Berkeley next year. Since he was a senior in high school, Mr. Hernandez has dedicated his professional career to working with youth who are deemed at-risk, with an emphasis on SEL, social justice, and critical thinking. He aspires to one day run his own program helping Bay Area youth find creative outlets that keep them busy and away from violence and other socio-economic challenges. When Mr. Hernandez is not working, he loves to play guitar, read comic books, keep up on philosophy, and write creatively. He is happy to be joining the daycare team this year.
Why I Work with Children
The youth will be here long after we are gone. It’s important to help them be the best versions of themselves and teach them from our experiences so they do not make the same mistakes.
