It gave me an opportunity to go back to school and to be offered a job at the school my daughter attended. The best thing I could have done was not stay stuck and keep moving and keep going after the things that were in front of me. I made it my business to keep trying with him and to let him know that my classroom was a safe space. I have been teaching for 16 years. He had started to struggle with attendance and effort prior to our heart to heart talks. I think if I could create my own subject it would be based around equipping children of color with the necessary tools to be able to navigate the world they will have to enter as adults.
Its just as important as a father in the home that a lot of urban kids are not blessed with.

What made you decide to be a teacher? My goal is for my lessons to be CPR to dying dreams of students. I am also the union chapter leader at the school How long have you been a teacher? There was another time when a kid brought cocaine to school and ask to speak with me privately about it. They should know what is out there in the world so they can take it head on. I never grew up wanting to be a teacher but after I finished music school I decided that if I had to have a job it would be one to serve a purpose. They wonder why there is a education gap.
