    Congratulations to AWLA member Rhea Grate at Saint James School in Montgomery for her students' achievement!

    Sumner Brown earned the highest score in all four categories tested: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.  He actually has earned the Working Fluency status.  This is amazing after only 3 years of high school instruction.

    Aubrey Wright earned the Functional Fluency status, which is also amazing since she has not taken Spanish this year.  She finished Spanish 4 with me last year (including one quarter of fully remote learning).
