Prior to my son being born, I always saw the world differently. Prior to my son being born, I always recognized inequalities that existed. Prior to my son being born, I never felt compelled to speak out.
Teaching for Change has opened up a new world for me. As the ESOL Department Chair at Buck Lodge Middle School in PG County, I am always trying to find ways to advocate for my students who mostly come from Central America. The Introduction to Central America lesson has allowed me to show our teachers how they can make better connections with our students.
