    I first learned English in the 3rd grade.  I grew up speaking Spanish because my family came from Mexico before I was born, maybe 17 years ago.  I didn’t speak it yet because I didn’t like the language that much.

    • I enjoyed reading your post and agree with many of the points you raised! I agree with your parents that you should try hard to retain Spanish. It’s so important in today’s world to speak more than one language!

    • Hi Victor. I think this was a racist and inappropriate remark from the teacher too. Speaking in any language is protected under the first Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;…” Anyone has the right to express themselves in anyway. How severe should her punishment be? Should she be fired for this, or be suspended for a period of time? Thanks for bringing this to light. I never heard of this story before.
