Julie Rawson taught Spanish at Brewster Junior/Senior High School in Brewster, a school that serves a population that is 50% Hispanic and 50% Anglo-American. Consequently, Ms. Rawson's teaching duties included Spanish for English speakers, Spanish for Spanish speakers and reading for middle school students. Ms. Rawson also served as the school-wide advocate for Brewster's Migrant/Bilingual program. Beyond her immediate duties as a language educator, Ms. Rawson has acted as a liaison between the English- and Spanish-speaking communities and considers it her duty to help form a "bridge between the two cultures." Ms. Rawson has also been instrumental in developing her school's bilingual program to include bilingual aides in the classrooms for after-school tutorials and to help implement the PASS program to facilitate accreditation for migrant students.
