My name is Norma Barahona. I am a Student Support Service Representative here at the Bridges to Success office for the last seven years. I’ve been aiding k-12 applicants and new students by providing them the necessary steps needed to enroll. I find it rewarding to assist students, learn about their success stories, and finally see them graduate. Having had previous experience as a program assistant at Los Angeles Southwest College, I was able to get a sense of the success that can be created through a helping hand. At Southwest, my primary focus was directed towards ESL (English as a Second Language) learners providing both outreach and preparing students to pass their Citizenship interview. Rewarding and enriching, I was able to discover my passion for helping students through the educational system.
Hello my name is Marvin I have been working in the field of education since 2007 and have been at LATTC since 2009. I am bilingual in Spanish. I came to the USA when I was thirteen years old and realized that education is one of the best ways to accomplish your personal and economic goals. That is why I believe “Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity”.
Hi my name is Betty Bilbrey-Velasquez, I have been working for LATTC since February 2015 in the Bridges to Success Office as a Student Services Support Representative. I have been working for the LACCD since 2007, originally at ELAC as a student worker in Contract Education and gradually moved up to SFP Technician with the Foundation Office, I later was hired at Los Angeles Southwest College working for two departments which were the Passage Program and Freshman Year Experience also as a SFP Technician. Since coming to LATTC I have really expanded my knowledge on the onboarding process for new, continuing, returning, and prospective students. I try to ease anxieties especially for new and returning students who are nervous coming back to school by giving them information they need towards their student success.
Hi my name is Armando Villalpando. I have been working for LATTC since June 2015 in the Bridges to Success Office.
