Julian Del Real-Calleros was raised in Lynwood with his sisters by proud Mexican immigrants. He attended Will Rogers Elementary, J.P. Abbott Elementary, Lynwood Middle School, and Lynwood High School before graduating from Vista High School in 2008.Julian was not an ideal student in his youth, and he did not receive any special recognitions. He did, however, have support from teachers and counselors, enough support to motivate him to enroll at Cerritos College. He was heavily involved with the student organization before transferring to the University of California, Davis. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with an emphasis in Literature, Theory, and Criticism and a minor in Film Studies. While a UC Davis student, Julian joined the international law co-ed fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta, and served as its Community Service chair. During this time, he found a job as a high school tutor, and I found my passion for teaching. Julian returned to SoCal and worked for Volunteers of America Los Angeles while working on his teacher’s credential at CSU Dominguez Hills. He is currently a full-time teacher with Los Angeles Unified School District. As a member of the school board, Julian hopes to inspire young Lynwoodians to pursue higher education. In addition to being a board member and full-time teacher, Julian is also involved with the Lynwood community as a planning commissioner and baseball coach with Lynwood Youth Baseball & Softball. When he is not working, coaching, and advocating for our community, Julian enjoys reading books, watching movies, and spending time with my family and friends.
