Instructor Spotlight: Ms. Zue

April 1, 2024

Ms. Zulema, or as our students call her “Ms. Zue”, is one of our rockstar STEM Instructors on her way to becoming a lawyer. Since joining our team, she's taught at both locations while balancing teaching, legal studies, and a passion for wellness.

Zulema joined our team in October 2023, as an In-Person Junior STEM Instructor at both our Claremont and Rancho Cucamonga creativity centers. Zulema leads a range of courses in our Junior STEM classrooms such as Duplo, Tech Machines, Engino, WeDo 2.0, Spike Essentials, Spike Prime, and Virtual Reality (VR).

Outside of STEM Center, she graduated with an English degree from UCLA and is now gearing up for something super exciting: Law School this fall!

Beyond her role at STEM Center USA, Ms. Zue is also pursuing a pre-law postbacc program, preparing for her journey in the legal field. And when she's not busy with academics, you'll probably find her finding her zen with yoga and meditation or enjoying strolls with her furry friend! In her own words, she’s “excited for the journey ahead, both in my academic pursuits and the mindful moments that bring balance to life!”
