Jesus Quintero Instructor, English De Anza College
I strive for excellence because at this very instant, many Latinos are being demoralized by school systems. Knowing my own experience is congruent with many of my marginalized students, I am aware of the issues that impede their growth as students. I see how missed educational opportunities impact the morale of families and communities. There’s so much at stake beyond what happens in the classroom, and that reality constantly reminds me that each day and each student matter.
