Meet The Team

Michael Mooney


Once I started my college education at 26 when I signed up for classes at Glendale Community College, I knew that I wanted to be in college for the rest of my life, and it was my good fortune to do just that as college professor or administrator over the past 30+ years.  I just love the environment!  I hope your studies at the Extension and SJCC will inspire you to work hard for your goals and dreams.  I’m living mine.  Come in to say, “hola,” sometimes because I’d love to hear your story, as well.

David Lopez

Evening Administrator

I've been an educator and learner for over 40 years.  I've served as an elementary school instructional aide and teacher, professor of education and as the President at The National Hispanic University in San Jose, Ca.  It's important to note that I didn't achieve all of the above alone. At every level, I had some of the greatest and most caring mentors. I've enjoyed my work in helping students, parents and the community especially those of limited resources and opportunities. Please do not hesitate to ask for help. Our great team is here to serve you.

I have been working in the community college system for nearly six years, and have had a variety of roles throughout student services. As a counselor, my job is to make sure our students have the skills and knowledge to succeed in their classes and in their lives. My office door is open to help with the full range of academic counseling services.
