• What’s the nut graf? essentially addressing why this story is important

After learning how often people of different cultures are not taught to appreciate their culture, language, heritage and race all together I wanted to document how this can be helped. The Spanish Immersion Montessori School offers total language immersion as well as multicultural Montessori education. With teachers who speak many different languages from all over the world, this environment offers children from 15 months to 5 years old the opportunity to learn in a way that many other schools don’t embrace.
