About this Grantee

As a literacy coach in this majority Hispanic district, Ms. Brooks believes she can meet the needs of her students better if she becomes fluent in Spanish. Ms. Brooks participates in a Spanish immersion course in Mexico and then uses her increased language skills to communicate with parents, build partnerships with local Hispanic businesses, and help her English language learners. Ms. Brooks makes presentations about her language immersion experiences to colleagues.
