My Students

I teach a group of young, diverse, resilient, and talented emerging Latinx bilingual leaders. These students have demonstrated their leadership skills by starting their own Latinx Leadership club at our school. My students have begun planning and implementing relevant programs and activities on campus and in the community. They have created a safe and inclusive space open for everyone in our school. The Latinx club is a place for community, collaboration, and acceptance. The Latinx club students are our future leaders.

My Project

More than four million Central Americans reside in the United States today, yet the lack of resources on Central American heritage in most schools make the rich history and literature of the region invisible. Central America is too-often portrayed as simply a strip of land on a map connecting North and South America. Students are left to imagine that their Central American heritage, or that of their peers, is insignificant. These materials will help fill the gap with resources for teaching about Central America at my school.

My goal is to encourage and support teaching about Central America in my school so that students can learn about this region, which has many ties to the United States through foreign policy, immigration, commerce, and culture.
