San Antonio TFLP

Hola, espero que todos estén aprovechando el Literacy Now Blog de NCFL. Quisiera compartir con ustedes una linda experiencia que tuve recientemente en San Antonio… continúo en inglés… *

I was recently in San Antonio, Texas, conducting a technical assistance visit with our three Toyota Family Literacy Program (TFLP) schools: Bob Hope Elementary, Sky Harbour Elementary and Sun Valley Elementary. In addition to observing Adult ESL classes, Parent Time gatherings, and Parent and Child Together (PACT) Time® in several classrooms at these schools, I also had the opportunity to participate in the Southwest Independent School District’s GED graduation ceremony. Four out of the 20 GED graduates at the event were Toyota parents (one of our parents could not attend the ceremony), and one of them led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and the Texas Pledge. It was a very exciting and inspiring evening.

Thank you to all the TFLP staff and parents, as well as SWISD personnel for the big Texas welcome and keep up the good work!
