A Walk In My Shoes: Besitos -
Besitos is part of the "A Walk in My Shoes" series that delves into the lives of teachers across Kansas. In this episode, we follow the work of five Latino ESL teachers in Dodge City, Garden City, Empoira and Olathe. Each has an amazing story to tell about overcoming the challenges of coming to the U.S., being the first to graduate college in their families, and growing into the role models they are today. Besitos also chronicles the Kansas State University program started 20 years ago that has helped 190+ students (predominantly Hispanic and Latino) become certified teachers adn counselors in Kansas, with an astonishing retention rate of over 90% 15 years later.
