Building on a long history between Davidson College and Davidson Elementary School, the FLES/Spanish volunteer program is currently in its fourth year. Weekly Spanish lessons are being taught in 1st through 5th grade classrooms at DES. The 41 Davidson College students volunteering in the program include: majors or minors in the departments of Education, Hispanic Studies, Latin American Studies, and Psychology; students who are returning from abroad; students who speak Spanish at home; and, Spanish-speaking Bonner Scholars. Twenty-five of the volunteers are concurrently enrolled in the fall course: SPA 311-Teaching Spanish at the Elementary School.
Many thanks to the 2015-16 volunteers who are contributing to the continued success of the program and to the teachers and administrators at Davidson Elementary for their continued support and enthusiasm!
