I learned a lot in the Behavioral health field and how to managed troubled kids and teens. I enjoy making a difference in minority students lives and letting them have someone to relate to. Based on my own experiences, I notice students benefit from all talented personals, who are committed teacher to them, regardless of their race/ethnicity. I myself have seen that when school personnel themselves are from historically under-represented racial backgrounds or low-income families, they can have a particular impact and are more persuasive with students regarding the potential for success in education and in life. I am committed to ensuring that there are significant representation of African American Latino or Hispanics, and individuals from low-income backgrounds that are successful like myself and want to pass my knowledge to those like me.
People who share the racial and/or economic backgrounds of our students can also be particularly influential in the long-term push for societal change, because of their rich perspective
and credibility, and because their leadership in and of itself demonstrates the value of that change.
