On March 23, SPAN's own Myriam Alizo joined Primer Impacto’s co-anchor Barbara Bermudo and her husband, Univision 23 news anchor Mario Andres Moreno, for the next education special: Estudiante Unico.  On this one-hour special the hosts shared some of their own experiences as parents as well as interviewed expert guests on how parents can leverage each student’s uniqueness.  The show highlighted various ways parents can help recognize a child’s needs and strengths and better communicate this information with school personnel in order to help ensure their children’s academic success.
