Arati Singh for AISD Trustee At-Large District 9

This Spanish language interview with Educa Austin chronicles how we engaged Spanish-speaking families at Oak Hill Elementary, a Title I school. Because our PTA did not represent our student demographics, I changed this by asking our PTA to embrace our Spanish-speaking families — not as service recipients, but as as leaders and resources. We got translators, brought Spanish-speaking families to meetings, and sought their input. Soon, previously disenfranchised Spanish-speaking parents rose up, launched a Ballet Folklorico club, monthly Spanish-speaking parent breakfasts, and a new Cultural Outreach Chair position on the executive board.

Priscilla, a former 4th grade student of Arati’s and a current educator, describes how Arati helped open her eyes to a world beyond her town of Donna, TX.
