Going to the Root: Jerry Tello Builds Pride From the Inside Out

By Robert Quintana

Jerry Tello is a builder and healer of communities. Tello builds pride—with blocks created from the history and culture of Mexico. "In our history, we have created more elements than any other civilization. Our people have understood astronomy, astrology, hydroponics, chemistry… and biology so the possibilities are there," says Tello.

Tello, who lectures throughout the country, has written extensively from articles to curriculum training manuals to commissioned papers. He has written for Parent Child Magazine, Early Childhood Today and Low Rider Magazine and was featured in Newsweek, Time and People magazines. He has authored several different curriculums for young Latino males all geared at raising pride and building character. To continue, click on the link.
