Congratulations to Judge Sonia Sotomayor
Congratulations to Sonia Sotomayor, America's first Hispanic woman to sit on the Supreme Court, and only the third woman to serve on the Court! Teachers, her hard times background make her a great role model for all children—she truly overcame to over-achieve! Gallopade (of course!) has new books available NOW on her— a Reader, and also a new poster with the entire Supreme Court (of course including her!), as well as a new reproducible activity American Milestone book on the Supreme Court, actually great for grades 4-9. I love the cover illustration...it makes those Justices look cool...imagine that! Go to www.gallopade.com to see them all; they are shipping now. So you know we had faith she would be confirmed—we started these six weeks ago and are FIRST!
