I am of Hispanic descent, but since I live in the United States, I have lost touch with my Hispanic roots. I don’t know Spanish and I hate spicy food. I might look Hispanic, but I don’t associate with the many stereotypes that come with associating myself as a Hispanic. I remember the first time visited my family in Mexico. I have heard many ugly stereotypes about Hispanics and I was not very excited to go. But since I was just a little kid, I had no other choice but to face my fears. Ever since that trip I have broadened my horizons and became less ignorant towards my family’s culture.
Growing up and going to school I have face some stereotypes with my education. The first stereotype people have judge me because how I speak, my writing skill and reading skills. Because I come from a Mexican background other people think and assume that I would never be successful in school. I was in a situation where I didn’t want to keep going to school because people that I thought would help me be successful in school would always tell me that school was not for me. My own family, teachers and even myself I would always think I was not good enough to keep going to school. Not knowing English growing up has affected me during my school years. People always use labels or categories me to describe how I dress, look, talk. Just because I
In Suncrest Elementary School, the school that I attend to, every year they would pick a fifth grader who has the best art picture and would be the cover of the year. I was excited to become a fifth grader because I want to be on the cover of the yearbook. It was until the beginning of April was when Mrs. Barnes was announcing that one student would have their art picture in the cover of the yearbook. I was so excited that one of my classmates including me would be chosen to cover of the yearbook and including in the newspaper.
I specifically remember my fifth-grade fieldtrip to the state capital. Everyone brimmed with excitement as this fieldtrip marked the culmination of elementary school. While I was thrilled like the rest of my classmates,
Imagine being perceived in a way were almost everyone thought one lived a catastrophic life based on the school they went to. A stereotype is an image of a person or group of people that is labeled or seen in a specific way by a range of people. Although stereotypes come with some legitimacy, another way groups and individuals are judged or viewed differently is by misconceptions. False interpretations forming from misunderstood ideas or thoughts are misconceptions.

Every high school is going to have their different cliques, which is where you tend to find yourself. There’s many different ways for students to find their place. Many student join clubs and activities through this they find people who are interested in the same activities as them, students bond on these activities and usually become good friends.

The three most prevalent races that comprise the population of my school are White, African American, and Hispanic. Whites are the predominant demographic occupying about 85% of the population, followed by African American at 13% and Hispanic at 2%. This ratio has been relatively stable for the last forty years, with a slight increase recently in the Hispanic populace. Throughout the course of our lives, we are often exposed to stereotypes that help form our opinions. In many instances these beliefs are not based on reality, but on information that has been passed down for generations. For example, many people believe African Americans rely primarily on single parent households, place little value on education, do not promote discipline and
I am surrounded by darkness, confined in a paltry room its contents limited to a bed with a thin mattress and pillow. The air is dense and smells of blood. The brown walls smothered in writing reek of mulch. The only way to get in or out is through a small metal door that is locked from the outside. I feel like a caged animal, my every move being watched. I curl up in a ball on the floor, panic, worry, and uneasily drift in and out of sleep. From what I can tell I am in a mental hospital. The Bella Vista mental asylum, the place where nothing good ever happens. I tremble uncontrollably and hear queer voices in my head.

A common theme that resonates in a high poverty school is the demographic make-up, always having high concentrations of African Americans and Hispanic students. With this common theme come challenges, including but not limited to low student achievement, unequal distribution of resources, and low expectations of student outcomes. All of these challenges provide a disadvantage for children who grow up in a neighborhood where there are racial disparities. According to Castañeda (2013), black and Latino students perform at a lower rate than their white peers in both reading and math (p. 57). This statistic is no surprise for most educators who are deeply involved in educating students in this setting. It is still alarming that with all of
