The Guest Reader Series is a weekly program designed to introduce our children to the variety of important work that Latino and Spanish-speaking people are doing in our community. We have visitors from a range of backgrounds who read a short story and describe to the children what they do. The kids love to learn about what each guest does, and through this series, they are able to hear many different careers from people in those careers.
This program gives the children many real life examples of the importance, and value of being bilingual and bicultural. Some of the guests that we have enjoyed having with us have included Washington State Supreme Court Justice Steven Gonzalez, Enrique Aguilar, Joaquin Hernandez, Keo Capestany, Miguel Guillén, Marcos Martinez, Taresa Jones, Margaret Kinsey, Jorge Enrique González Pacheco, Kristen Kleinsasser, Rosita Romero, Paola Maranan, Lourdes Tsukada, Monserrat Linkletter, Maria de Lourdes Victoria and Rep. Luis Moscoso.
