2. #TBT: Growing up, how did your culture/language influence your identity (Latina, Chicana, Hispanic, etc.)?

Posted by Stephanie Puente on October 25, 2016 at 10:49am 0 Comments

My dad and grandma only speak Spanish, which made it very difficult for me to communicate with them because I was accustomed to the English language. As I got older, I took Spanish classes and was becoming fluent in the language. I was very afraid to speak Spanish because we live in El Paso where the majority of people speak Spanish and judge you for not…

Hey Guys!!

Last week the girls learned about Girl Power within the Latina community. The girls were taught that they can do anything they set their minds to.

The girls were encouraged to decorate their envelopes to make them more personal. In this same lesson the girls were asked to make a superhero logo of their own and stand in a superhero pose.…

The Importance of... Game

   I want to start writing about the importance of things; mainly the importance of specific species of animals. Plants and natural resources are great too, but other topics can be considered. There are too many choices if I just take some off the top of my head, so I am asking for any suggestions. If you find yourself questioning, “why are sting rays important?” for example, you can leave that comment on my blog or page, and hopefully I’ll be able to answer it. This could actually be a fun…See More
