Year In Review Fostering a Community of Practice Elevated student voices in the local, regional and national spaces Carlos Rosario School immigrant students shared their perspectives before adult educators and public policy professionals at regional education conferences, a national convening of the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education, and the annual Barbara Bush Foundation literacy celebration.

As a new student, I wasn’t expecting to represent the school at such an important conference like MAACCE [Maryland Association for Adult, Community and Continuing Education]. I felt like I was able to share my experiences with other people interested in helping the adult immigrant community.
