I found my 7 year old digging through the house for change. I asked why. He owes Carmen, la elotera who sells corn & fruit outside his school, $1.50. I will remember this moment when folks ask why that school, that neighborhood. 1/6
He knows her NAME and schedule ("cada jueves, a veces los miércoles"). #dignity #respect #streetvendors
He is doing MATH ("elote en el palo $2, en la copa $3). #informaleconomy
He is 7 and he has CREDIT ("me dijo cuando lo tengo"). #moraleconomy
He is eating CORN and not junk food ("tan rico") . #nutrition #culture
He is learning about COMMUNITY ("siempre es tan nice!"). One of the many reasons why. #community #curricula #teachers #outsidetheclassroom
