In Episode 45, dual language English teacher, Victor Martinez didn’t see many other Latinx students like himself in college and he wants it to be different for his students.
We discuss opportunities and attitudes, along with bringing the lived experiences of his students and their families, however harsh they may be, into the classroom.
Also why do Victor’s students prefer to speak English rather than Spanish, and how does he challenge this.
