'Roots of Our Hispanic Heritage' Class
Celebrates the End of the Semester
While I have received wonderful feedback from many of my journalism students over the past 11 years at Lehman College, including many who are now professional journalists and still keep in touch with me, yesterday’s last meeting of my “Roots of Our Hispanic Heritage” course was truly extraordinary.
My students went out of their way to show me how much they appreciate what they have learned, expressing
sentiments that nearly brought me to tears on several occasions. They brought in a wide variety of Latin American food to share with their classmates, and they brought me a cake that said, “Thank You, Prof. Pérez.” They gave me a cupcake marked “A+”.
