    T.I. Making a Difference in Kids Lives
    dejazul17 says(2 years 4 months ago)

    I use T.I.'s music to engage my students and teach them about poetry and literary techniques. I have a kid in my class who is very near going to jail for drugs and weapons, and I love this kid to pieces. The other tachers can't wait to see him make his next mistake because he is such a pain in the ass, but he is perfect for me. Sometimes, I really wish someone with the background that T.I. comes from would just pick up a phone and call him, and tell him it is the "bigger man" that has humility and hope.

Sometimes, it is just having a role-model of your own demographic, or with your own aspirations that can make a difference. When I listen to T.I. perform his music, I feel like there are rappers out there who care enough. Anyone have a suggestion of how to save my student?
