SA 300 Teacher Ambassador
Teachers!

We want to hear from you! Do you have any Spanish-speaking students? Have you been utilizing the Tricentennial resources, lessons and events in your classroom? Our SA300 partners at Univision are looking to highlight students that have been exposed to these resources. This is great opportunity for you, your kids and your school to get featured on one of the major Spanish-speaking television networks. If you would like to be featured, please let us know if you're interested by replying to this email.
Univision is planning to start coverage soon so if you haven't been able to incorporate Tricentennial related information, resources, lesson plans and field trips it is not too late to start!


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Sincerely,


ITC Education
