Twenty years ago, Aimée Eubanks Davis taught in a middle school that served low-income kids in New Orleans.
She didn't define success in terms of test scores. Instead, she focused on the future, wanting her students to graduate from college and find a good job.
Eubanks Davis remembers when some of her earliest students first began that process, sending out resumes and preparing for job interviews.
"Oh, my goodness," she remembers thinking. "This is the moment you want to see: your former students living their dreams."
