TheDream.US Offers Thanks to Former Scholars Working as Teachers During this Difficult Time

 

Washington, DC - Earlier this week, many higher education institutions and leaders celebrated an Educators Day of Action to support DACA. TheDream.US joins these allies in sending a special thank you to teachers and other educators during this difficult time. In particular, we send a thank you to our graduated Scholars who are now working as teachers. Below, we highlight the stories of Marisela and Oscar - both former TheDream.US Scholars who are now working as K-12 teachers. They are two of the 16,000 DREAMers with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) status who are working in education, including thousands as teachers. 

 

According to Candy Marshall, President of TheDream.US, “We are proud to see many of our former Scholars serving their communities as teachers. As the nation and world struggles with coronavirus response, teachers and others working in education are playing a critical role in supporting and communicating with students, families, and their broader communities during this difficult time. In the case of our former Scholar teachers, they are not only dealing with the anxiety of the burgeoning pandemic, but doing so while their own futures remain uncertain due to the precarious state of DACA. We extend to them our appreciation for their dedication and our support for all they do for their students and communities.” 

 

Below find two stories of former TheDream.US Scholars who are now K-12 teachers:

 

  • Marisela is a TheDream.US Scholar graduate now working as an elementary school teacher. As she noted in a videoreleased last November, “I would tell the Supreme Court to let me do my job. I love my job. I love my students. I love my school. I love my community. DACA has benefited the US because a new generation of professionals are ready to serve the country that they love.” Watch a 2-minute version of Marisela’s story here

 

  • Oscar Hernandez is a former TheDream.US scholar and graduate of Arizona State University who is currently an Arizona public school teacher through the Teach for America program. In a recent profile published by INSIGHT into Diversity, Oscar stated: “Having experienced extreme unpredictability at the hands of politicians, my fellow DREAMers and I are resilient and ready to face whatever hardships lie ahead of us. Employers should know that they can count on us to work hard despite the adversity that could lie ahead. At my lowest point, DACA liberated me from my fears and gave me the ability to envision plans for myself.

 

Last week, TheDream.US highlighted our thanks for several of our graduated TheDream.US Scholars who are now working in healthcare and on the front lines of the coronavirus response as nurses (see more here). Additionally, we continue to offer gratitude for all of our Partner Colleges as they seek to ensure the health and safety of TheDream.US Scholars and their entire student and community populations during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

About TheDream.US
 

TheDream.US is the nation’s largest college access and success program for immigrant youth, having provided more than 5,000 college scholarships to DREAMers at more than 70 partner colleges in 16 states and Washington, DC. We believe that all young Americans, regardless of where they were born, should have the opportunity to get a college education and pursue a meaningful career that contributes to our country’s prosperity.
