Graduate Success

Diana Gabriela Loera

Diana Gabriela Loera / Giving Back

Diana Gabriela Loera (Gaby) dreamed of helping others like her through education. As an immigrant from Aguascalientes, Mexico and a first-generation student, she faced a challenging road to achieving her dreams. Her experience at CMC helped her get there.

Gaby and her family moved to the United States when she was twelve years old, no one in her family knew how to speak English. She worked closely with her teachers after hours to keep up with her studies and nurture her English-speaking skills. The dedication from her teachers inspired her to help others.

She enrolled at Colorado Mountain College after graduating from high school and said the CMC experience worked well for her.

“I thrive in small, intimate settings,” Gaby explained, “when a professor knows each student as an individual, it’s so much easier to succeed.”

Her classes averaged nine students per course at the Vail Valley at Edwards campus.

Gaby took advantage of many of the resources available to students at CMC. Scholarships and TRIO Student Support Services were crucial for her success as a student and growth as an educator. Gaby started giving back to CMC by joining the TRIO student staff as a peer academic coach, tutoring other CMC students.

Gaby graduated in May 2022 from Colorado Mountain College with a bachelor’s degree in education and is qualified to apply for four endorsements, including culturally and linguistically diverse education and bilingual education specialist. She accepted a job as a bilingual kindergarten teacher at Edwards Elementary School and predicts 40-60 percent of her students will be Hispanic or Latinx.

Gaby is focused on “authentically teaching these kids about their culture.”
