SAN FRANCISCO, CA – October 13, 2016 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Gracefully Global Group is pleased to announce that founder Graciela Tiscareño-Sato will be delivering the keynote speech at the Texas Association for Bilingual Education’s Annual Conference in Galveston on October 20th.
The conference theme is “Bilingual Education” – ¡una ola de éxitos!
Ms. Tiscareño-Sato will share her educational experiences as an English Language Learner and celebrate the impact specific educators had on her life that positively affected her long-term professional and personal successes. She’ll entertain attendees with how she overcame cultural obstacles (like traditional, domestic roles forced on young Latinas and resistance to moving far from the family) to attend U.C. Berkeley as a four-year scholarship Air Force ROTC cadet. The speaker will share proof points of the multitude of advantages of being a bilingual American with stories from her careers spanning global military service (including an Embassy liaison officer post in South America) and corporate marketing roles at both a German telecommunications company and an Israeli renewable energy equipment company. Tiscareño-Sato’s strategies will encourage teachers to spark and fulfill the ambitions of today’s ELL students.
“Graciela’s educational journey and professional accomplishments will perfectly amplify the theme for our conference,” said Jose Hernandez, executive director of TABE. “We’re delighted that Ms. Tiscareño-Sato will be speaking with our teachers, reminding them all how critical their work is today to creating the next huge wave of educated, bilingual Americans and professionals.”
Today as social entrepreneur, publisher and sought-after speaker, Ms. Tiscareño-Sato is using her multilingual, multicultural, global life experiences to create unique, bilingual literature for our nation’s schools and libraries. Her mission is to positively showcase the contributions of Latino Americans in the USA.
