In a city ridden with overpopulation, poor living conditions, poverty and unsafe work environments, Addams established this institution on September 18th, 1889. This concept of a settlement house was not a new idea, and began when middle-class reformers in London sought to improve the lives of poor workers by providing social services such as daycares, night classes, kitchens, and bathhouses.

Ten years ago, I chose to make the biggest decision in my life and that was to become a teacher. And the way…

In reflecting on my own upbringing, I can see the people and situations that have led me to my current understanding of myself. As a quiet observer, I absorbed everything I am from the people around me who I…
