Amy Sherman

To better understand the large Salvadoran population at her school, Ms. Sherman will travel to El Salvador, where she will study the language, history, geography, religion, and culture. Through this work, Ms. Sherman will look to improve her own cultural competency and the competency of her colleagues. Their increase in cultural competency will aid the cohort in building stronger relationships with Salvadoran students and their families, and allow educators to plan more appropriate instruction for their students.
