Yolanda Varela

Instructional Assistant


I was born in Los Angeles CA, raised in Jalisco Mexico, and been living in Long Beach CA since married, 1998. I have six members in my family, four beautiful children and a wonderful husband.

I begin my career in Mexico when I first completed my technical education at CETis 14 (Physics-Mathematical Programmer), after that I completed my equivalent to Bachelor’s Degree in Technology Education (Licenciatura en Docencia Technologica), and after that started working in different positions using computers.

My first job using computers in Mexico was at Ford CAVSA in the Informatics Department, then at MINIS Publicity as Computer-Accountant Assistant, and finally as Computer Instructor in CECATI School for Adults and Computer Instructor at EMMA Military Aviation College.

My first job using computers here in US was at World Hockey Alliance as Data Entry-Administrative Assistant, then at Pioneer as Administrative Assistant, after that at the YMCA as ASP Site Director, after that at LBCC as Instructional Associate in the ESL Department, then at the LBUSD as Instructional Assistant-Computer Resources, and now Instructional Associate at LBCC in the COS Department.

I love to help others to learn to work with computers, but I also love to be with my love ones.
