Thursday, July 16
This la Hora del Cuento Virtual/Virtual Storytime is presented by Marta Machio, who reads Mis Zapatos y Yo: Cruzando Tres Fronteras by René Colato Laínez.
Machio is originally from Sevilla, Spain, but has lived in New Orleans for 15 years. Machio has been a Spanish teacher for the past 11 years. She taught at Destrehan High School until 2019 and now teaches at Tulane University teaching Spanish with the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. She has two boys in elementary school and she loves to bring them to the library and read with them. Raising her children to be bilingual is important to her, as she knows how important it is to know other languages. She appreciates the Spanish books available through the Pebbles Center.
