Grossmont College Student, Daleyna Agurrie

Every student at Grossmont College possesses a unique life story beyond their academic pursuits.

Whether it’s full- or part-time students, the college values its diverse student body, and faculty and staff aspire for the success of each individual. 

Emphasizing student achievements and life aspirations fosters a sense of unity among Grossmont students, revealing shared experiences and common goals.

Daleyna Aguirre, a 19-year-old full-time student at Grossmont, maximizes the college’s resources and opportunities available to her. Beyond her academic commitments, she engages in professional endeavors as an after-school teacher, guiding kindergarten to 5th-grade children, aiming to be an approachable figure providing academic aid and more.

Aguirre said she likes “being a person kids can come to.” She offers her students help with homework and more.

During her free time, Aguirre watches new streaming shows, cherishes family moments, and occasionally delights in baking. 

As a resolute decision-maker, she said she has always aspired to pursue a teaching career and has always desired a college education.

“I always wanted to go to college,” Aguirre said. “I wanted to jump right into it.”

Grossmont College was the perfect opportunity to put her dreams into action, as it was the closest campus to her house.

The college has proven beneficial for Aguirre’s academic journey, offering affordable classes that seamlessly integrate with her work schedule. Particularly fond of her online courses, she admires Mary Courtney, her Child Development and Family Studies professor, describing her as a beacon of support.

“I love her vibe. She’s nonchalant and very clear about expectations. She’s made second year at Grossmont fun,” Aguirre said. 

Courtney said Aguirre is in a challenging eight-week child development course. 

“She has demonstrated her commitment to learning by her engagement in and application of her knowledge in course assignments and activities,” Courtney said via email.

Courtney is helping Aguirre fulfill her goals while offering sound foundations and a helping hand.

Aguirre continues to navigate toward her aspirations, finding Grossmont’s support instrumental for her success. She said the college’s backing has been adequate, offering the necessary support she requires for her educational journey.
