Pulido was recognized for her piece which is called "No Space For Commas." The Salinas Union School District said her piece was focused on a typical day in her life as a high school English teacher.

".Drive to school with caffeine. Bathroom break before school. Good morning! Is it good? Conduct class. I hope they learned something. Did I teach it the right way? Students laugh; sense of relief. Please put away your phones. Will this be my death chamber? Where is the nearest exit?" Dorantes-Pulido wrote in her piece.
