In my last post I talked about everyone having their own story. Mine, in short, is that of a young black man, struggling to find his identity and felt he had to get out of his surrounding to find his direction.
It’s important for students to hear your story. Sing it! Shout it! Explain it! Most importantly, own it! If I could, I would wear it everyday like a cool, quirky t-shirt (Urban Outfitters style). Instead, I smile every day! I teach because I love learning and want to motivate and encourage others to love it also.
