"I understand our students’ struggles because I was raised in this community and shared the same struggles they have. I am an English language learner, and I understand how students feel when they have a hard time understanding the content or are frustrated with their language development. I form part of this community’s culture and I am able to quickly relate to them and use my life’s stories as examples. I truly hope to make a difference in their lives." —
