Humans Of SD – Sandy Perez

“I’ve been teaching here at San Dimas for two years, I previously taught in Riverside. I see kids struggle the most with their self-confidence. There are people that just say, “oh I suck at math I don’t understand it” and they don’t try at all, and then there’s the other kind where maybe they’ve been lazy in middle school and they don’t know how to multiply, or add so they don’t have the basics to do the hard math. My parents are immigrants from Mexico and I’ve seen them come from dirt nothing. They work so hard to give me everything I have. I feel like in life it’s just how hard you work. It’s not whether you’re born smart, or if you have a tutor that makes it better for you. It’s about how much effort you put in a class and how much time you put in. That’s what determines how well you’re going to do in life.”
