School: L.G. Pinkston High School
I share a background with my students that many educators do not. I attended a low income, underperforming high school near Houston, but I received support from my family that helped me succeed when so many others did not. I am the only member of my family to attend college, much less finish a masters degree. I try to be that support for my students to enable them to succeed where so many before them failed.
