Jennifer Degenhardt

ninera "La niñera was my second story inspired by the lack of connection my students were making with the Spanish-speaking people that their parents hired to work in their homes as housecleaners or landscapers.

I would ask my students if they knew people who spoke Spanish (it was decidedly NOT a diverse district) so that I could encourage them to practice their language skills with those people. More often than not, my students didn’t even know the names of the people who showed up weekly in their homes.

In the story, Ashley and Yamila couldn’t be more different, both ethnically or economically, but still, they are good friends. They grew up together as Yamila always spent time at Ashley’s house because Yamila’s mom is the family’s nanny. Of course, there is teenage drama and misunderstandings which adds to the conflict."

Information for teachers

La niñera is a common story, but one rarely told in accessible English. Students of English have access to rich vocabulary, through a story whose cultural content also presents topics worthy of discussion.
