‘Not as cool as a teacher, but I think I’m doing OK’: Student’s mom on her daughter’s CCSF certification

By NBC News | December 14, 2017 10:54:22A San Francisco high school student’s mother says she believes she did not make it through her eighth grade years without seeing her daughter graduate from college.

Maria Rodriguez said she never wanted to see her daughter, who graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in public health, fall behind academically.

“I would be so proud of her,” Rodriguez told NBC Bay Area.

“She was the first person to do all of her homework in her high school history class, and she took the ACT.

So she was not doing poorly, and I think she made it through it,” she added.

Rodriguez’s son, Josh, who was enrolled in high school in the fall, said he believes he and his older sister were not able to complete the ACT, and were not successful at all in the high school calculus.

“They both graduated,” Josh Rodriguez said.

“I can’t say enough good things about the school.

The teacher was amazing, she really helped me with everything.”

Rodrigas son and his sister graduated from high school last year, and said the family did not get a lot of credit for the success.

The couple said they hoped that the students would not fall behind, and that they could earn a degree.

“It would be nice to go to college,” Josh said.

“We know how hard it is to make it, and we know how difficult it is for our parents to do it,” Maria said.
