“I’m the daughter of a maid. My mother cleaned toilets. She said ‘Mija, do a job so well done that even when you’re not there your work will speak for itself.’ That is what I wanted out of the children who sit in classrooms today. Do your work! Do it to the very best. Graduate with honors. Cross the stage. Thirty-nine Rodríguezes during graduation. Fifty Garcias! I say, ‘Fantastic!'”
– Consuelo Kickbusch (The Latino List)
