Meet Jose Manuel Cruz, Art Teacher at Shepard Magnet Middle School
Has worked with DPS since 2015
On Latina Pride:
Hispanic heritage means to me the recognition of our rich culture, which includes our customs and our foods. It also a means keeping our cultural history alive with our traditions and values.
On DPS' commitment to cultural inclusivity:
Having DPS honor our heritage is a sign that we are all in this journey of inclusivity together, and the respect that DPS has not only for our heritage and culture but for its existence and preservation. Thank you for the learning and teaching of our rich history here in Durham and in North Carolina.
