Having very high expectations for her students was her way of helping them succeed. When the environment around these students caused them to fail, Erin knew they were capable of more.

It was the last week of school, and Kristina was in 8th grade. Kristina couldn 't wait to be in 9th grade, but she hated that she was being bullied everyday. Kristina had cried everyday, at school during lunch, during class, after school on the way home, and at home. On the weekends she wouldn 't leave the house, because it was her only time she got away from the bullies, and she didn 't want to take a chance on being seen outside of school. Kristina would tell her mom everything.

I would not tell anyone, not even my father, because she always made me feel like everything was my fault, and that I was always the one to blame. Until one day when she took me to school no said "I do not want you living in my house anymore; you are going to move in with your father". I held in a lot of my emotion for most of the day until I told my best friend what was going on and that I would likely be relocating to Vallejo; where my father lives.
My dad leaving me and my mom has changed me into the person I am today because when I was a little younger I would never listen or even show respect to anyone. I was always so bad and I just cared about myself that was it even in school I was disrespectful to my teachers and I didn’t care. I would always get in trouble and talk back once he left I thought a lot about myself and I would tell myself that he left me and my mom because of me and because I was so bad and disrespectful and I hated myself I hated the person I turned into and I knew my mom did too. So I told myself that I was gonna change and for the better so I started listening in class,not talking back,showing respect to people,and being really nice to friends and family.
