La persona bilingüe vale por dos.
A bilingual person is worth two.
I heard those words not only from my parents, but also from my teachers as I was growing up. Learning two languages has really been an advantage for me, and has allowed me to reach out to more people than I probably would have had I only known one language. In my jobs prior to becoming a teacher, it always felt good to provide customer service to those who might otherwise be neglected, misunderstood or overlooked. As a teacher, now I am very proud to be part of the dual language program, where I can not only develop the foundational language of my students, but also enrich and empower them with a new language. The opportunities that await them are limitless. What do you think?
