San Antonio second graders taught unity after election

What to share with kids about the election

SAN ANTONIO -- What words of wisdom do we impart on our kids now that the election is over?

In Cynthia Zaldivar's 2nd grade classroom at St Luke's Episcopal, the message is "unity.”

"They know there is a lot of anger between the two candidates it seemed, but we always try to talk about the unity and it's all for the betterment of the United States," Zaldivar said.  

She's been teaching her students about how America chooses its president for about a month now.

"I think they have a good understanding of the process, but we were very objective about it. No opinions one way or the other and I think that's the way it should be taught," she said.

Outside her classroom, Zaldivar's students plastered the walls with presidential posters of themselves.

And she thinks one day our president might just be one of her second graders.

"We'll be in good hands," she said.
