Belton, Texas, au pair Scarlett Palomoone recently volunteered at a local high school to assist students in their Spanish lll class. Scarlett is from El Salvador and since the class was beginning a project on Central America they were excited about the the opportunity to learn about her country first-hand. The students asked Scarlett a variety of questions about her home country including what type of music was considered "traditional", if uniforms were required at school, and even a few questions about the politics of El Salvador.
With the sun shining bright, over 2,500 local residents in California’s North Bay Area took full advantage of the hot weather and enjoyed Marin’s annual Hayday event. The old-fashioned county fair is held in a local pasture, and the funds raised support the Belvedere-Tiburon Library’s children and teen programs and services. A little heat didn’t discourage a group of au pairs from joining in the festivities, meeting local residents and volunteering at a number of stations during the event.
