#20years20lessons Lesson #3 ~ Profe Osman Quintanilla

Profe Osman has been teacher at the Amigos de Jesús Bilingual School since the beginning of 2010 and is the current principal. Read his lesson below:

Working at the Amigos de Jesús Bilingual School is the first job I started after earning my teaching license and I have been at the school ever since. So professionally, I have learned almost everything I know here. That means little, however, in comparison to the life lessons that I have learned from being here because Amigos de Jesús, for me, is not just the place where I work but also a second, incredible family that I have.  Here, I have learned to value life and family, to be a good father, and above all else, to have hope.  When I see our children little by little healing from the wounds of their past and see that they are happy children, it fills me with joy. Getting to be part of those experiences makes me stronger.  I think that I learn more from the children than what I could ever teach them.
