The title of “Ms. Vue” is one to be earned before stepping into a classroom because it will be one of the names to be constantly asked and demanded of. The journey of gaining this title is definitely not an easy one nor can it ever be perfected but a continuous learning process. With my own reflection of my background and beliefs before coming into this field, I am better aware of what this title encompasses and how to prepare for setbacks and more learning opportunities ahead. With the ethnography research of my own classroom and students, this will inform me of who and how to love my students. And with the community research, it’ll help my students become human and allow me to contextualize what they bring into the classroom.
