KERRVILLE, TX– Out of hundreds of submissions to the statewide competition, Tivy High School teacher April de Garcia, was chosen as the lone recipient for a classroom makeover from a local law firm. As part of its #howicare campaign, The Carlson Law Firm opened statewide nominations for one dedicated teacher to win a classroom makeover valued at $2,500.
Kerrville attorney Amos Barton presented Mrs. de Garcia with her new classroom library along with The Carlson Law Firm swag to help students throughout the year.
“April’s dedication to teach and support her student’s educational and personal growth in learning a language pushed us towards helping her have the resources to best help these students,” Barton said. “Bilingual educators are opening the world of endless possibilities to their students for today’s interconnected world.”
As a bilingual, nationally recognized law firm, we recognize the importance of dismantling language barriers to best serve our communities and their legal needs. The ability to speak multiple languages is essential to thriving in the global economy, and gaining a bilingual education has been proven tremendously beneficial to students.
