Flores Family Helps Student Pursue Teaching Dreams

Josefina Regalado Valdes, works with students in her classroom.

Josefina Regalado Valdes, now a student teacher, is very close to finally achieving her dream of getting her own classroom thanks to the help of a scholarship. Valdes says that she would not have had the same opportunities to achieve this dream in her home village in Mexico.

Valdes received the Salomón H. Flores Memorial Scholarship, designed to help students pursue their dreams of teaching, with a special focus on bilingual education.
