Teaching my fourth graders

To be the authors of their narratives

To be the definers of their identities

To be the harvesters of hope

To be dreamers

Teaching my fourth graders

About Red Hot Salsa 

About the importance of family traditions

About Abuelita and Nana and Grammy

Who dreamed of and harvested hope
