"High school students, especially the juniors and seniors I have the privilege to teach, are generally more aware of the world around them. They are finding jobs, hunting for colleges, figuring out what life will be for them beyond high school. They are getting to an age where so much is expected of them as citizens and young adults, and I want to equip them with the skills to handle those expectations responsibly. As such, I have to engage with them in a way that is more complex. I can expose them to complicated issues—at local, national, and global scales—and help them realize that not only do these problems affect their lives, but they must play an active role in solving them." —
