Ch. 12 captured this special Spanish-language connection.

Oakdale Spanish immersion teacher David Garcia-Carro loves to find ways to get his students speaking, reading and writing Spanish, and he loves to connect them to well-known people who speak Spanish. In November, the class sent off handwritten letters -- in Spanish -- to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. This week, Mr. Garcia-Carro found a fat envelope in his mailbox at Oakdale. In it was a personal letter from Justice Sotomayor, along with a book on the Supreme Court, a copy of the Constitution and an autographed photograph for the class.
