About Ina

"The reading and writing program is a perfect idea.  If she's going to work in this nation, she has to learn the language..." From an interview with Maria Arreola, whose 9 year old daughter attended the "Pawprints Literacy Plus" program.  Mrs. Arreola speaks only Spanish.  Questions and answers were translated by her 17 year old daughter.

Shawnta Bishop, Randy Pettaway and Brendon Spann’s Mom, speaking of the letter Randy wrote in a Pawprints Literacy Plus exercise following a trip to the Science Center – “Write to an imaginary boy named Michael, living in Kenya (foreign country selected by his group)telling ‘Michael’ why he would enjoya visit to the Los Angeles Science Center.” The comments also reflect feelings about the overall experience with the literacy program
