Takis or Hot Cheetos? Takis! 100%! When the students first introduced me to Takis, they’d burn a hole in my stomach, but now I eat them like a boss! 💪

Favorite 826LA moment(s)? Some of my favorite moments have been when I’ve seen the students are proud of their writing. The look of accomplishment on their faces is everything.
