About Heather Robertson

I am currently teaching 4th Grade Dual Language Immersion part-time In Madison, WI. I have taught 4K-5 English as a Second Language, middle school English, Bilingual Science, History, Technology and Spanish in Milwaukee Public Schools, Wis., Madison Metropolitan School District, Wis., and Glendale Unified School District, Calif. I was also a Bilingual and Literacy Instructional Resource Teacher, and a Teacher Leader in the Professional Development department in the Madison, Wis. My passion for Latin American literature stems from my Bachelor's Degree in International Relations and Latin American Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I hope to share my love of the South with the world. When I'm not chasing my son or two step-children, I would love to spend time with you sharing Books del Sur. Contact me: heather@booksdelsur.org

Today I celebrate May Day by reflecting on the dismantling of Wisconsin's Teacher's Union and an excerpt of my chapter in Why We Teach Now, edited by Sonia Nieto.
