The Girls With Chutzpah

Posted on

Petronila and Martha have chutzpah, and that’s what we like about them. They chased Larry and me down last January to get our email addresses after we visited their classroom. They are studying at a boarding school in Antiuga for indigenous girls preparing to be elementary school teachers in their home communities many long hours away.
They stayed in contact with me over the past six months and will be graduating in October. We met again this trip to discuss the needs of their home communities to see what I Can Read can to help them promote reading there.
They were not happy that their pictures were being taken without advance warning, but I convinced them you needed to see their faces.
