Pascale Charlot is not typical. And neither are her students.

Ms. Charlot is the dean of the Honors’ College at Miami Dade College.
"I see myself in these kids," she said. "I’m a first generation American of Haitian decent. I was the kid who just loved to read. I was a nerd, a proud one, and I’m still a nerd to this day."
Ms. Charlot said her students are special too. "They’re high-achieving, they’re talented and they are looking to transform their lives, their families, their communities, and they’re looking to us to help guide them to that process," she said.
