America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the eighth installment of the series. On episode 8, "Nobody Can Hold You Down” of the America to Me series, I share effective strategies to combat against student's anxiety particularly test anxiety, which is currently impacting Caroline. I also discuss Mr. Clark, one of the few Black male educators at Oak Park River Forest High School. Lastly, I ponder how educators should connect with kids like Tiara, who doesn't give her full effort in any academic sense.
