Spotlight: Ava H.

     In Kindergarten, I didn't know any English. So the Spanish half of the day was fine, but the English half was really scary. 
     Now I'm in second grade, and I even think in both languages. If I'm in English class and you point at that thing, I think of it as a "chair" first, and not a silla."
