We had a great time celebrating our nation’s charter public schools this week. It was exciting to see so much activity across the country during National Charter Schools Week.
Many people might assume that charter schools are not beneficial for students due to small enrollments and other limitations. However, my experience at Zenith Academy has made me a well-rounded individual as well as a successful citizen of my society. Furthermore, it has provided me with countless opportunities to build a strong network that will truly contribute to my future.
Had you told me 10 years ago that I would become a teacher, let alone, go back to my high school to teach, I would’ve looked at you like you had three heads. The only thought on my mind was becoming the next big news anchor and, like many other teenagers, how far I could move away from home upon graduation. But here I was, walking back into Principal Bernardo Montero’s office looking to start my career in the world of Academica. Without a doubt, I was welcomed with open arms and my love for education began. I should’ve known education would become my passion, after all, both my grandmother and aunt are educators.
