Nickname:

Abe

Parents:

Ramon and Maricela Caballero, Kenosha

Most influential teacher:

Bhuvana Baskaran, Math

“Math has always been a subject I struggled with greatly. The time it took my peers to learn the material, it would take me double. Math just did not click for me. Mrs. Baskaran knew that I struggled and that I did not catch on to the material as quick as everyone else but instead of pushing me aside, she did the exact opposite. She would make me solve problems in front of the class, constantly, so I would get more practice. By the end of class if I did not fully have a grasp on what we learned that day, she would tell me to come in after school so she could thoroughly explain it to me, again. As a teacher she was dedicated to seeing her students succeed. Most importantly she had the patience, whether it took me 10 minutes after school to learn the material or an hour, she stood by me every step of the way until she knew that I understood what I was doing.”

Role model:

My mom

“My mother came to this country 17 years ago with nothing. She worked two jobs, day and night. She spoke little to no English but did not let that set her back. I remember days where I would not see her at all until the following morning. When she did have time she would spend it with me, taking me to parks, museums, or the lake. She worked nearly 24/7, but at the end of the day she did everything for one reason: me. Today, she still works as hard she did 17 years ago. Without her, I would not be where I am today. She has pushed me to do new things, try new sports, and allowed me to travel to many places.”
