“I love teaching here. I feel very connected to the vision, to serving immigrant students. My parents were immigrants, so it’s like - giving back. My dad made a... lot of decisions that I’m very grateful for. I can’t imagine moving to another country and starting brand new at 17. That is some next level bravery.”
Andrea Negrete | High School Math Teacher at Oakland International High School

“I’m definitely a teacher that’s constantly growing. I’ll never know everything and I’m always willing to learn. And some of our best teachers are the students.... We can learn so much from the students if we’re patient and if we’re listening. You know, actively listening.” — Barry Turner, Teacher at Urban Montessori School in Oakland
