0ccupation: dual language teacher in SAISD

Why I joined SA RISE:  My first year in the classroom I realized that community voices were notably vacant from many conversations regarding education and I felt strongly that community members needed to be integral parts of education reform. I decided to help found SA RISE with several other educators who felt similarly in June 2016. I continue to do this work because I believe in the strength of our students and community and in creating ever-better outcomes for students.

0ccupation: Master Teacher SAISD

Why I joined SA RISE:  Early in my teaching career I recongnized that despite the best efforts of my students and I, there were things outside of our control that would prevent us from reaching full potential as a learning community.  It would take a community outside the school and classroom involving all stakeholders in San Antonio, to create positive change.
