I was relieved to finally get an appointment at the Escuela Secundaria Técnia No. 29 Xiuhtecuhtl, in the southeast part of Mexico City! I met with the sub-director and the three teachers of English as a Second Language. They were very welcoming and positive about my placement with the school. The director also attended part of our meeting and gave us the thumbs up. As all good teachers know, one of the secrets to successful teaching is the initial planning. We decided to meet and plan in the coming weeks so that by the first full week of October we can initiate the classroom teaching and research to gather these amazing community stories of significant people! Of course, my aim is to capture what characteristics and actions students think are motivating to them; perhaps they can one day apply that motivation to change something in their environment. One day.
