My daughter started Kindergarten with a disadvantage; she was a second language student. I knew that she was in for more of a struggle than other students, but it was important to us that she have a foundation in Spanish first. Her teacher was very instrumental in creating an excitement for learning. My daughter is now at the same level as her other classmates. I attribute this to the school's curriculum, the dedication of its teachers and parent involvement. I love this school. Now, how do I get her to revert back to Spanish when she is at home? I don't want her to lose her 1st language.
