I’m Sophia Cheng. I’m a lecturer in Asian American Studies at UCLA. I love my students, I love what I teach, and I graduated from this program. As lecturers, we teach 1/3 of undergraduate credits. We are a critical part of the undergrad education. Invest in teaching — cutting lecturers only increases class size, reduces course offerings, and makes it harder for students to get the support they need. Our working conditions are students’ learning conditions.
