A Lindenhurst High School alumna recently returned to share her success on the soccer field, but with an educational twist.
Class of 2015 graduate Claudia Cagnina visited Andre Dattero’s Italian class to share her experiences as a member of the Peruvian Women’s National Soccer Team and playing soccer internationally in Finland, Iceland, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, all while speaking Italian and answering questions from students in the language. Additionally, Spanish students joined in the visit and were able to ask Claudia questions in Spanish as well.
As part of the fun visit, Claudia brought the classes outside to teach them some soccer drills while continuing to expand the students’ knowledge of the Italian language.
