New York

Grade 2, New York
Country of Origin: Spain

My babysitter came from La Coruna, Spain. Maria came in the year 1986 on a plane. It took Maria 7 hours to get to America.

My sitter worked in a factory. It was a fish factory. It didnĘt smell very bad. It was pretty hard to find a job.

When Maria found a job in America, Maria was working for me and my family as a housekeeper. Maria was fun to play with. (Maria started to speak English.) (Maria knew me since I was 2 years old.) (Maria is a very nice sitter.)

Maria took a very special thing with her. It was a picture of her family. (Her father came for a better life too. Same with Maria.) Maria started to like America after she was staying in America.
