Rebecca Hughes, an English as a Second Language teacher at Amphi High School

On January 8th, the entire Tucson community experienced a tragedy that left us all looking for answers.

For several of Tucson's students, that search found it's way to Rebecca Hughes' English as a Second Language classroom at Amphi High School.

This tragedy demonstrated that teachers continue to take on roles that go above and beyond assigning homework and grading tests.

Clearly, there is no answer to why? But, in this week's Teachers' Voices, listen to a personal essay by Mrs. Hughes and learn how her classroom created an open forum for healing.
