A DACAmented Teacher Sees Himself in His Students and Their Families
When asked if he would suggest that other college students in his position follow him into the DACAmented program, Cristian’s reply is unequivocal.
“I definitely say that if you’ve got your DACA and are thinking about joining Teach For America, you should apply,” he says. “We need a lot of people who are aware of the issues that involve a lot of our communities.
“As a teacher, you’ve been through high school and college, and so it’s important for our students and families to see that they can do it and make it through high school and college. You can be that role model for them in the classroom.”
