Senior Class Interview – Cesar Ramirez (Class President)
Your class is very special in that you guys won the float for the three years you participated, why do you think that is?
Our class has always been very creative and during our meetings, everyone has always had an input of ideas. Everyone has been willing to participate and put in the effort. We have always been a community and that shows in our float and our class spirit in general. Graduation is 3 months away, you were elected as the leader for your classes’ final year of school together, why do you think your class elected you for this position?

I feel that I’m very vocal and able to speak for the class as a whole, some people have felt that they
don’t belong or that they don’t have a voice and I try to be able to give them one. I also feel like I am a very hands-on person, I like to lead by example.
How do you feel your last year together as a class has been going?
Honestly, our senior year hasn’t gone as planned. We started off strong with homecoming week but I can see a division within our class. I think this because people want their senior year to be what’s best for themselves as opposed to what’s best for everybody. People have been letting their pride get in the way and that’s what has kept us from having the senior year that we planned.

This is my 6th year working at the High School. I have always loved history, especially when I was in college taking classes that went into specific parts in history. History is just one of those classes that is a core subject but feels like a fun elective. I went to Deming High school! I graduated in 2011! I am from a family of teachers; my childhood was spent in classrooms and school yards, so I feel like it is in my blood. I knew I wanted to stay in Deming to teach history and I was lucky that there was an opening since back then it was difficult to find a teaching position for history. I love teaching history! Teaching a diverse group of students, attending school games, participating in spirit weeks, and enjoying my summers is what I love about being a teacher. I get inspiration when students gain a better understanding of a new topic by the end of each class. I really enjoy when the students learn something new, it means I am doing something right.
