As part of HSLDA’s membership team, Marilú serves as the first point of contact for Spanish speakers interested in HSLDA’s services. Additionally, she provides interpretation services for Spanish-speaking members seeking legal assistance (click here for information in Spanish on state homeschool laws), as well as Spanish translation and editing for HSLDA resources.
