Women in the Classroom: The Life of Maria Urquides Online Event

SUPPORT

The Arizona Historical Society welcomes you to attend Women in the Classroom with speaker Jan Cleere. Join the conversation about Maria Urquides, “the mother of bilingual education in Arizona.” Urquides’ teaching career launched her humanitarian efforts towards educational equality. During the early years of her career, she was forced to forbid students to speak in their native language. Angry with the injustice, Urquides decided to change the landscape of teaching non-English speaking children.
