Student’s Presentation Surprises Her First-Year Teacher

While most students were choosing familiar figures such as Frida Kahlo, Cesar Chavez, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor as subjects for Hispanic Heritage month presentations, one fourth-grade student in McAllen ISD honored her own teacher — Raquel Pérez.

Ms. Pérez, one of our Charles Butt Scholarship recipients, has only been a Texas teacher for two months, but she is already a hero to her students. Many of them relate to her incredible journey — a life of hard work and perseverance to achieve her goals. Watch and see why her students see strength and inspiration in their Texas teacher.
