My name is Guadalupe Marquez. I have periodically visited the Santa Ana Zoo since I was in elementary many, many years ago. I received a Bachelors of Science in Child and Adolescent Development at California State University, Fullerton. I am also currently enrolled there in the BCLAD credential program. For many years now, I have worked with children and I feel like it never gets old. I enjoy every minute of it. My first job working with children was as a youth sports coach and for the past 5 years I have been employed for an elementary school as a Bilingual Paraeducator. I also substitute teach at the same elementary school. As an educator, I enjoy learning experiences in which children can actively and constructively participate and learn. The zoo is the perfect place for this to happen.
