    More than 50% of the students we serve are Hispanic. I would use these books with our families learning classes to increase the number of bilingual reading materials for parents and children to read together.

  70. Wendy Pfundtner says:

    I work with a variety of students K-12 in a small district in numerous capacities, GT, Enrichment, Middle School Spanish class, High School National Honor Society. I try to get to know all students I come in contact with, to help them feel good about themselves. I enjoy greeting them in the hallways, emailing something positive or specific to older students, helping them advocate for themselves at all levels, being their to listen when they share, being their voice when they are voiceless, observing what they do well and sharing positive comments, eating lunch together, supporting their dreams in any way I can, acknowledging diversity and embracing the positive, writing positive notes to them, and even admitting mistakes when necessary to help them realize we all make mistakes. Then I encourage all to try to weave mistakes into something positive. Modeling tolerance and sharing knowledge to open mindsets whenever possible. I work in a professional community where many of my colleagues also rise to the high calling of facilitating a positive, safe, open social emotional environment cross age and culturally.
