Pearl Arredondo: My story, from gangland daughter to star teacher

“Pearl Arredondo grew up in East Los Angeles, the daughter of a high-ranking gang member who was in-and-out of jail. Many teachers wrote her off as having a problem with authority. Now a teacher herself, she’s creating a different kind of school and telling students her story so that they know its okay if sometimes homework isn’t the first thing on their mind.”
