#bethelight – Day 187

Today I started feeling a little worried about an upcoming production.  The students were having such a hard time catching on.  Then, in the middle of the night, I realized the problem… Spanglish.  These student speak a language different than English and different than Spanish.  They Speak a mix of the two.  The script, written in English with a little Spanish sprinkled throughout it, was hard for them.  Today I went into rehearsal, pulled my friend aside and asked if it would be okay to tell them to speak the lines in Spanglish!  We tried it.  It worked!  I am so proud of these kids!  I am not as worried now.  Today my act of kindness was to encourage art by celebrate what makes us all unique.
