Testimonial
Institute Staff

“The Paridad staff ensured that every facet of the Oaxaca Language, Culture and Art Institute program ran efficiently and met all of our travel, dietary and logistical needs from start to finish. The artistic, historical, cultural and culinary experiences we were provided were unique, varied, complex and thought-provoking. Even more impactful however were the professional and personal transformations that our participants underwent. As educators of linguistically and culturally diverse students, this trip provided a window into the reality of our students and the communities from which they prevail. In turn, it provided each of us with a mirror to examine our own cultural interpretations, biases and privileges. Every last one of our participants was changed as a result of our experience in Oaxaca in both professional and personal ways.”—J. Baricovich, Director of Assessment and English Learner Programming, Cook County School District 104, Illinois
