Student Essay: By Cameron from HES
The Equity Warrior for April 2021 is Mr. Kumar Sathy, a fifth grade teacher at Hillsborough Elementary School. Cameron is one’s Mr. Sathy’s students and he demonstrates in his compelling essay, that Mr. Sathy creates a classroom environment where students feel not only comfortable to speak out against injustice, but where they are also encouraged to be skeptical and form their own opinions. Cameron chose to write his opinion essay for the class about tough topics. And this is a demonstration of the outcome for students when you have teacher who sees equity as not another thing, but the thing.
