My students are awesome! Full of potential and dedicated as well. The students at my school are about 90% latino in one of the lowest household income areas in our city. They attend a health and sciences school with hopes of one day entering the medical field as a bilingual medical professional in a field that so desperately needs individuals like my students. Our school is a start-up high school in its 3rd year of existence. As a result, we lack many resources that an established school may have, and we also have issues with space. Because of this, students are extremely lacking opportunities in the arts and in sports/extra-curricular activities which I always felt are the placed where students can establish an identity for themselves in high school. I remember as a kid, my parents not having money to spend on an instrument and them saying, "It'll just be sitting there in a few weeks anyway." I'm hoping parents will see the progress their children are making with music.
