What I’m doing with my life
I am a high school teacher in a GHETTO school. But I tell my kids
I'm from Compton and give them my "dangerous minds" stare down for
the the first 3 months. They saw my teeth for the first time last
week. Too bad they don't know I'm from the Long Island of
California. Needless to say it works for the both of us =)
I’m really good at
Spinning things on my fingers, staring down students who misbehave,
ordering too much food, starting impromptu dance parties &
The first things people usually notice about me
My students: "Do you know karate?"
Strangers: "Are you Japanese???"
