Leticia

Leticia volunteers once or twice a week, we only have class twice a week. When Leticia volunteers she interacts with the children and teaches them about her culture. Leticia has shared with the children pictures of her culture, samples of her bead work she does and clothing she makes. Leticia says she never went to school so she didn’t learn to read or write. I admire this women because she learned to speak Spanish because she speaks a dialect. Leticia does a nice job telling her own stories when she reads to the children. I would like to add for the month of October when my Co-teacher was gone Leticia helped me in the classroom.
