The Elementary School has dedicated the Semana de la Lengua Española (Spanish Week) to children’s literature and to author Georgina Lázaro.
Georgina Lázaro is a Puerto Rican writer who studied Science in the University of Puerto Rico and worked as a school teacher for various years. She decided to reitre after she was married to take care of her children and this is when she started to write stories and poems for and about her children.
In 1987, Tony Croatto, a popular Puerto Rican folksinger, converted one of her poems into a musical hit. In 1995, another of her poems was recorded and presented in Puerto Rico’s “Centro de Bellas Artes”, by Puerto Rican musician and singer Roy Brown.
She has also written poems that introduce children to Federico Garcia Lorca, Pablo Neruda, Miguel Cervantes’ Don Quijote de la Mancha and other mainstays of Hispanic culture.
