In a continuing effort to provide East Texas with the best news stories around, KLTV Spanish reporter Belen Casillas interviewed the dual language first graders and teachers at Kilgore Primary School. The interviews and story came out on the Spanish news app NOTICIAS ETX.
Mrs. delaGarza teaches a one-way classroom composed of students who speak mostly Spanish at home. Mrs. Chavez teaches two-way dual language where students from English speaking homes and Spanish speaking homes learn together. Both one-way and two-way classrooms learn at the same pace.
The goal is for all dual language students to become biliterate and bilingual while in elementary school.
