The learners will also be able to speak a bit about the history of the region
I graduated from college in 2002 with a B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology, my minor was in Spanish and Latin American, Latino And Caribbean Studies (LALACS). I'm used to working with children of all ages as well as their families. I'm also working with people of diverse backgrounds.  I believe that Children have an innate love for knowledge.  I believe that it is our jobs as adults to guide them according to their interests.  We need to make the experience fun and meaningful. I spent my childhood in Paraguay, South America speaking only Spanish.  I learned English as a twelve year old girl who had just relocated to the US. 
Learners will find .PDF files containing maps and country information in the classroom portion of the portal.
