Through poetic expressions, she delves into the vulnerability of children, the struggles faced by working-class and immigrant parents, the dedication of teachers, and the flaws within bureaucratic systems. Sáenz's poems evoke a wide range of emotions, from anger to amusement, providing an authentic glimpse into the realities of today's public school landscape.
