The title of the article is "North Carolina Teacher IS Changing the Lives of Her ESL Students- and Their Families" by Amy Eskind.
Francis' goal is to help Spanish-speaking families thrive in and out of the classrooms. Her aim is to make sure that not only are the children in her classroom thriving, but the parents as well. She is known to educate parents on reading levels, as well as how to successfully understand report cards.
Another reason why she was included in People is her effort to celebrate Hispanic culture by organizing related events. She also hosts events for parents to help them encourage their children in school.
Francis is a former Cabarrus County Schools Teacher of the Year and immigrated from Guatemala at the age of 15, with no English speaking skills. It's this experience that has given her inspiration to do the work she does within the community.
Congratulations, Emily and thank you for your continued hard work within our community!
