Portrait of Ginger Gordon

Like Anthony Reynoso, Ginger Gordon has a lot of energy. She is both a public school teacher and a writer. Reading is her special subject. The students in her classes, as well as students like Anthony Reynoso, inspire her.


The Reynosos follow many traditions of Mexican ranchers. For yearly photos, they wear outfits worn by Mexican ranching families. What is your family's cultural background? What kind of clothing might you wear for a special family photo? Draw a picture of yourself, dressed in an outfit that gives clues about your cultural heritage.
