Javier's Journey to Read & Write

We all miss the classroom. If you close your eyes, you can almost hear the familiar buzz of learning—teachers leading lessons and students working together. 

While we eagerly wait for our school buildings to open again, here's a glimpse into one of our classrooms at Beverly Park Elementary School from before. 

This is a story about a student named Javier and his journey to learn how to read and write, as told by teacher Michael Dobranski. The path was not easy. Javier worked very hard. His teachers never gave up on him. And that's when the magic happened. 

Thank you Javier Yguado Jr., and educators Michael Dobranski and Christina Smith for sharing your story.
