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.
