Life on the reservation can be difficult for students. Poverty and other issues are prevalent. But, a teacher in Durango believes teens’ lives can be changed by offering a new class. “Really, just all kids, girls and boys from all socio-economic levels, we want all kids to know that they can succeed in rigorous curriculum,” Tara Haller, a Durango High School teacher, said Haller, one of 450 teachers from around the world attending the Advanced Placement for All Summer Institute put on by The Colorado Education Initiative’s Colorado Legacy Schools AP program.
