On-air personalities visit select HISD schools to show connection between reading and careers
A popular Spanish-language television station is getting HISD students excited about reading in a whole new way.
Through Leyendo con Telemundo, five different on-air personalities—including newscaster Paulina Sodi and weekend anchor Antonio Hernandez—are visiting classes at select district schools once a month to talk about the importance of literacy.
The visits are part of an on-going partnership between Telemundo Houston and HISD, in support of the district’s Literacy By 3 movement.
