Students always have a favorite teacher whom they can relate to. That teacher is someone who talks to them in a personal way and treats them more than just a random face in the classroom.
Mr. Murillo connects with his students by making lessons relevant to their lives and is willing to talk to you about life going on outside of class. He challenges his students to get good grades and get ready for high school and college.
Produced, shot, and edited by Darion Robinson, Greg Mercado and Angel Sanchez.
