June Parent of the Month

This month we would like to recognize Marisol Garcia as our Parent of the Month.

Marisol, a parent of students at Chicago's Edwards School, graciously allowed us to get to know her a little better. Here is what we found out...

SLI: Mariosl, how did you become involved with SLI?
MG: I started attending the Early Childhood workshops when my daughter was in preschool and from there I was invited by the SLI Team to be a volunteer parent facilitator for the Early Childhood workshops at The Edwards Center for Young Learners. Then my daughter started kindergarten and I was asked to join the K,-8 facilitator team and present the parent workshops in the main building at Edwards School. I was delighted to become part of SLI.

SLI: Why do you feel the work that SLI does is important?
MG:  I feel the work of SLI is important because I learn many things for myself and my children. The workshops are very important because they give us information to give to our children and we also learn from them.

SLI: Tell us something interesting about yourself.
MG: I am a very happy person; I love to go to the mall and shop in the stores, go to the movies and I love to spend time with my family.

Thank you so much, Marisol.  We value your dedication to SLI's mission! Congratulations on being named the Parent Volunteer of the month!!
