School: Thomas A. Edison Middle Learning Center
Class: 7th grade English/Language Arts/Reading
Experience: 2 years

I was called to this work by the vision and mission of Teach For America-- who believes that all kids—no matter where they live, how much money their parents make, or what their skin color is – deserve access to a great education. Due to this paradigm and strong foundation, I was able to exemplify both Teach For America and Stand for Children's mission into first-year classroom. The racial demographics at Thomas Edison Middle is 60% Hispanic and 40% African American and many of my students will be first generation college students. To prepare my students for college I had to ensure that I maintained high expectations and kept the coursework rigorous. I also used student data to guide my instruction. The students were held accountable for their progress by recording their scores on their individual student trackers.
