Helping her fellow Danbury parents

When Danbury High School held a workshop to help parents of English language learners get acquainted with school rules, the grading system, and everything else they needed to know to help their children succeed, Danbury PLTI alum Maryangela Amendola was there to help.

As the Danbury News Times described it:
High school parent Maryangela Amendola spoke Spanish and English as she told parents about the School Governance Council, a group of parents, community members and educators who advise the principal on improving the school. She explained that the state required the council be established because the high school's test scores were not adequate.
 Way to go, Maryangela.
