Watching parents’ faces as they talk about their child’s biliteracy development fills my heart with joy. Tuesday night, parents shared their hopes and dreams about their children in the dual language program. They wrote their thoughts on the little blue or green thought bubbles that Ms. Ramirez, 2nd grade dual language teacher, created for them. They shared their child’s enthusiasm and they shared their child’s challenges as they go through the program. Mostly, they shared how much joy the thought of knowing that their child will become biliterate and bilingual will bring them.
