Tiago grew up around the gangs in Oakland and feared that he might not live to be 21. Rescued and adopted my an adoring family, Tiago was diagnosed at age 29 with a Learning Disability. Once he knew why learning was so difficult for him, he could talk to professors and work out a way to take the classes he needed to earn a Master's Degree. He's now working and helping kids stay in school at the same school that kicked him out as a teenager.
Several professors were asked to watch the video series and make comments after seeing and hearing his story. You will find these very useful to share with other faculty.
