Cecilia is an immigrant high school senior. She is the President of our Hispanic Youth Organization and Historian of the Texas Association of Future Educators. Here are her thoughts on teaching and education in our country. 

Q: What would you change about our country's public school system? 
A: I would change tracking. I feel that by tracking students you are limiting students to only perform at that certain level, preventing them from freely learning to their full potential. 

Q: The ideal teacher is...
A: one who helps their students beyond the classroom. 

Q: What is one thing that you wish teachers today knew?
A: That every single student deserves full potential to learn equally. 

Q: When I am a teacher I will...
A: make sure my students perform to their full potential.
