The beginning of the second quarter is in full swing! Our geography classes are focusing on immigration into the United States. We have discussed the various push and pull factors that influence a person to leave their home country. We have also talked about the role immigrants have in our country such as bringing new foods and customs.

We have also made connections with how Lexington has changed and been influenced by immigrants such as the various Latino restaurants, Chinese restaurants, and even Somali restaurants. I try to stress to my students that we are fortunate to be exposed to so much diversity in such a small community.
