The Reading Rapido Bilingual Learning Center has kicked off its third year at De Zavala. The center, made possible by a grant from the Pasadena ISD, increased English language skills with the help of literature CDs and partner-reading of on-line books in a laptop station.
Saul Cisneros (center), an honor roll student at De Zavala,
huddles with his new friends, Wilmer Ramirez and Jesus
Rubio, two participants in De Zavala's Reading Bilingual
Center. Cisneros volunteers three days each week at the
center to teach English vocabulary to his schoolmates.
