My middle school is located in East Oakland, California. My students are primarily from low-income immigrant families and they are highly motivated to achieve. They are all proficient to advanced in mathematics and they want rigorous curriculum. My students wake up early to attend my STEM class before the official start time of school. They are waiting at my door at 7:55am to be challenged and learn about the possibilities in engineering and technology. My school is very community-based, with an active family center and mental and physical health services at our school-based clinic. We have an amazing team of highly qualified teachers that strive to serve a community that in many ways has been neglected and struggles with poverty and violence.
