That Open Door We Have Been Waiting For
Hit play to watch the video.
||Valerae Washington, Texas High School Geometry Teacher at the inauguration of Barack Obama.
Videographer Len Davis was in DC for YES! Magazine, capturing voices of hope and courage for these new times.
This historical moment means very much to Val and her students. She feels she can now give her students a different perspective of what life is and what an individual can do in a world that is so big. Because "now you can actually believe and see that you can do anything you set out to do."
