I remember last year being invited to Keynote in Grand Island, Nebraska and asking the Conference Chair person, “Are you experiencing an increase in Latino population growth or did you simply hear that I am a fantastic Keynote?!?!?”
She answered, “Both!” Their town of Grand Island now consists of 40% Latino families, while the entire state of Nebraska had actually increased in Latino Population something like 170% over the past five years (now, don’t quote me on that percentage, but it’s something really high because a woman on the airplane told me, I just didn’t write it down!).
BOCA the mascot and I, Boca Beth, WOWED them, educated these 325 early childcare professionals on how important it is to introduce two languages early in life for early reading skills and for creating lifetime language learners! PLUS they had a blast! Check out the pix below!
Movin' & Groovin' Fun with Boca Beth
We will post more pictures and a YouTube video of all the fun later this week!
Thank you Sue, Roxanne, Jeanette, Nancy, Margaret, and all of the amazing, wonderful, giving, sharing, loving, terrific early childcare professionals of Grand Island and the surrounding cities! I love you gals (and two token guys!).
Happy Educating! ¡Sea feliz educando!
