Thank you!!! Thank You!! Thank You!! I am not an educator, but I am a minority, and I have had teachers like you that tapped into my potential and challenged me in "urban" failing school systems. Please understand that my gratitude is not because you decided to go against the grain of the system, but because you are a TEACHER and applaud all that realize what you have and seek to make changes in any way possible, no matter what your ethnicity happens to be.
