Hispanic Heritage Month Spotlight: Dani Grimaldo at Cowart Elementary


Dani Grimaldo, a fourth-grade teacher at L. P. Cowart Elementary,  embraces her Mexican culture and talks proudly about her heritage with her students as a way of relating with them.

“I tell my students that growing up I had piñatas too and share with them that I come from an immigrant family like many of them,” she said. “My culture helps me connect with many of my students and parents. I want to help them learn about the importance of higher education, just like my parents taught me.”
