This is one of my babies!!! He was in my English for Math class back in 2004. He is really the nicest young man, and visits with me a lot in the hall. He always asks about Marcie, who came to his class twice that year to help teach AP Psychology. He's a smart fellow, learning what means the most to you and then asking about it when he sees you.

In September 2004, the United Nations refugee agency resettled Francis, Yagba and Robert in Dallas.
A month later, Robert, then a 16-year-old, enrolled at Hillcrest. Although he could speak three African languages and some broken English, he could not read or write because he had no schooling in the refugee camp.
