Do you have beloved memories of well-loved books from your childhood? Many of my inner city students do not have these memories because they have spent their first twelve years of life as non-readers. My colleagues and I are working hard every day to reverse this growing trend of "dormant" young readers in Texas. At my school, we believe that every child should have access to a free college preparatory education, regardless of zip code or economic background. Our school exists to send low-income kids to college so that they can come back and transform their communities. I teach 7th grade English at an inner city charter school where we work hard every day to provide kids with the educational and emotional resources they need to be successful in life.
