The Migrant Spirit
Dear Migrant Family,
Rosa Gilbert, Migrant Education Program Director of Northwest Regional ESD shared this wonderfull video with everyone. Please read her message.
I'm emailing to share and celebrate a video about one of our families in region 6, the Lopez family.
At our annual kickoff with all Northwest Regional ESD staff, we enlisted Alejandra, a student in the Migrant Education Program to welcome educators. This story represents the culmination of multiple years of developing a supportive, reciprocal relationship with her family.
Alejandra and her family volunteered to tell a very personal story to hundreds of strangers in large part because of the trust they have in Rosa and Amanda to carry their message forward with integrity.
The point of sharing this video with the 600+ staff at NWRESD and the wider community is to set the expectation that we listen deeply to student and family experiences and needs as we jump into the school year, especially in the context of this global pandemic.
Alejandra’s telling of her story models courage. Her story is the story of many of the students we serve as part of the Title 1C program. Watch - The Migrant Spirit.
Espero que lo disfruten,
