This Thursday I get to fly off to Utah to attend ALAS: Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents. Where I will meet and reconnect with some amazing educators and guess what? The majority are of Latino/Hispanic descent. It's awesome to talk and share stories with so many individuals whose stories about moving to the USA themselves or their parents or grandparents AND in many cases whose roots are older than the USA itself. YEP! People of Latino / Hispanic descent whose families lived here in what is now known as the USA's Texas, New Mexico, California, etc. before it was what now know as the United States. We get together and share proven strategies and ideas of how to best support our largest growing demographic in our nation's 14,000 school districts. Currently less than 2% of our country's superintendents are Latino/Hispanic. We must all work together to recruit and develop more teachers and school leaders.
I also talk about what I consider the #1 tip when thinking about writing your book...READ! Read lots of books, this helps you find your voice.
Have an amazing rest of your week and I will catch up with you next week! Share my blog and let's connect on social media. If you need me email me at 1010PublishingUS@gmailcom
See you next week!
