— At Coats-Erwin Middle School, Fredy Parra said he’s lucky to have his dream job.

"I just love teaching. You cannot imagine how rewarding it is, this profession," says Parra. "I think it’s passion. You need to have passion for what you do. And, when you find that passion, you’re just happy every single day of your life."

For 10 years, Parra has worked teaching students English as a Second Language.

"Helping them find that voice, helping them be able to communicate and be able to share, that’s just magic," he said.
