Today’s Champion is Jose Jimenez! This video shows students at Cedar Ridge High School, telling why Jimenez is their American Graduate Champion. “Sr. Jimenez is a great example of a teacher who is truly making a different in his student’s lives. Sr. Jimenez pushes us to do better in his class and in other classes. He makes learning so entertaining and he inspires us to do our very best. He is so friendly and open, and he makes his classroom so engaging, exciting, and comfortable. He has always helped us through high school.” Watch the video to find out more!
