My Story

I was invisible until the 12th grade. A teacher told me “ I see you. I see your potential. You are greater than what you are doing.”

In 7th grade, my daughter had a teacher that didn’t see her potential and decided that giving her the answers was okay, leaving her to believe that “less than” is okay. I joined The Oakland REACH because our kids can achieve so much more. The only limits they have are the ones placed on them by adults.
