Liz: Spanish Community Service Learning Students Help Parents and Teachers Connect

Last night I went over to help out with the parent-teacher conferences at Central High School. There were actually quite a few students that showed up. I was really impressed that so many students wanted to help out! Thanks everyone! I helped as a translator for one family, I knew the student because I had tutored him before. At first his dad seemed a bit shy, but he opened up more and more as we visited all of the teachers and he was very grateful that the school had offered the invitation for him to come in to class because he was able to get suggestions on how to help his son be successful in class. The parents really want their children to get a good education and learn English so they can grow up to do what ever career they want to. The conferences seemed to encourage both the parents and the students to let them know that they are doing the right thing and going in the right direction to a better future. Thanks again to every one who came out!
