My name is Sanjay Bhan and I am the career navigator the Career Navigator and Technician at Thomas Downey High School. As a graduate of Downey, being a Career Navigator and Technician there feels like a second home. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies from Brandman University. Being a former teacher, I understand how important it is to have a genuine connection with students and set a path for them as they begin adulthood. Being a Career Navigator and Technician gives me that chance, in number of different ways, providing all avenues for the students to succeed in life."
