Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) visited Reston’s Lake Anne Elementary School on Wednesday, where he discussed with administrators issues such as the need for more mental health services and early childhood education resources.
Kaine visited the school, which has a large Spanish-speaking population as well as a Spanish Immersion program, as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.
After the meeting, Kaine joined three classes — a first grade, a Spanish immersion, and a Head Start class — where he talked to students read to them in English and Spanish. Kaine is fluent in Spanish after spending time doing mission work in Honduras in the early 1980s.
