Math teacher Laura Servin talks with television, radio and newspaper reporters after winning the Texas 2015-16 Milken Educator Award at Whittier Middle School, where 98% of the population is Hispanic. Servin, who communicates with her students and their parents in both English and Spanish, tutors students who need extra help before and after school, during lunch, and on weekends. Her hard work has yielded great results: Servin’s algebra students achieve 100% mastery on Texas' state algebra exam, and students in her other math classes earn high pass rates.
