As a result, the San Fernando resident settled for a variety of low-paying jobs to help support her children, ages 12, 10 and 8. Attending college en route to a career was something the 31-year-old Mexican native never fathomed.

The third-graders at the Dolores Mission Elementary School can hardly contain their after-lunch energy as they jump into beanbags and type out paragraphs of their life in the reading lab. Downstairs, Chris Evans' second-graders are dipping their hands, some all the way up to their elbows, in a goo to paste strips of newspaper over blown-up balloons. The hardened shells will be cut in half to make masks for Dia de los Muertos.
