First-Year Latino Teacher
Mayes, Clifford; Montero, Fidel; Cutri, Ramona Maile
Multicultural Education, v12 n1 p2-9 Fall 2004
Much has been written over the last two decades on the difficulties that many Latino students continue to face in U.S. public schools. In this article, the authors look at some of the most pressing of these problems in a particular middle-school in a Rocky Mountain state (which the authors called "Madison Middle School"). The authors examine these issues from the point of view of a first-year Latino teacher at that school, whom they called "Carlos," through extracts from a journal that he kept during that first year as a novice teacher of color. Unlike most studies that deal with the problems of Latino public school students, this study also allows individuals to have an insight into a Latino teacher's "own" internal and institutional dilemmas as he helps his students makes sense out of theirs.
