Eighth-graders learn about world-changing Latinx contributions

Eighth-graders walked through a gallery of 10 world-changing contributions Latinx have made during the last 50 years, from space exploration to school integration during world language teacher Kaitlin Link’s Spanish class. “I wanted them to learn something new, something they probably haven’t heard before,” Link said, explaining how she chose the 10 exhibits for the gallery. “I want students to see how many contributions people of Latinx heritage have made, not just in the U.S. but around the world.”
