Dear Friends of Juntos,
Okay, so this is my favorite video yet! Well, I love them all but this one is especially touching because in this video it is the Juntos students themselves who are being interviewed. This is the first time in what seems like way too long that Mrs. Letty and the students actually get to see each other! : safely and respectfully of course. When I spoke with Letty she mentioned that many of the answers from her students surprised her. I thought about this and realized that the reason for it is simply that she is teaching humane education as it is meant to be taught! These kids are not robots and their lessons do not involve rote learning. Their teacher and guide gives the students the tools necessary for them to come up with solutions to deep questions. They are encouraged to think about what it truly means to be a humane human on this planet. Their answers come from their hearts and expanding minds. It is a beautiful thing! Please take a few minutes to watch this video.
