My name is Luis Moreno and I am a Spanish teacher at Augustus F. Hawkins HS (Chas). I came to USA in 1973 undocumented from Mexico and I experienced working in construction, restaurants and in the show industry until I became legal. In 1986, I started with LAUSD as a dance instructor and as a teacher assistant. Then I got my teaching credential at CSULA. Now I am in my best time of my life because I enjoy helping my students to learn and discover their cultural background and their identity through short stories and the study of poetry and the Spanish language.
