Jessenia Guerra will never forget her third year as an elementary school teacher, when she was approached by the grandmother of one of her students after school. In Spanish, she said to Jessenia, “Ms. Guerra, my grandson and his mother held each other as they crossed the border and they’ve been holding on ever since — we are trusting you to take care of him now.”

It was one of those moments that carves an indelible sense of duty in your psyche; and the weight of that grandmother’s words has influenced Jessenia’s path as an educator and advocate of children’s rights to this day.
