I'd take extra special care in hiring a school secretary. And, -smiling and greeting- would be just as important in that job descriptio n as organizati onal skills. Why? The school secretarie s play a critical role in Latino parents feeling welcomed in the school.

I would first want my teachers to understand that they need to embrace the culture and language of Latino students in order to begin the learning process. Without the physical and emotional needs met in the hierarchy, learning cannot take place. Hi everyone I was so excited to find out there is a Latino group!!!! I am an educationa l consultant with ASCD and I am part of the Differenti ated Instructio n cadre under Carol Ann Tomlinson. I look forward to chatting with everyone!

es. Many students are second and third generation Latinos who have returned to Puerto Rico. Many others are planning to go to the States to continue their post-grad studies. I look forward to sharing with the group.
