When it came time to go to graduate school, private foundations such as the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute and the Ford Foundation paid my way and the U.S. National
Science Foundation paid for my research. Glenda Flores has noted in her award-winning

have become more open to Latino teachers and teachers of color.
