Today’s Champion is Mai Theingi Tun Than. Mai is a Parent Support Specialist for the Burmese families in the Austin Independent School District. She helps the Burmese refugee community navigate the admittedly complex school system, and related public and private agencies. Mai’s efforts include helping refugee families facilitate school enrollment and teaching the Burmese community about services available through the District and on their individual campuses. She provides Burmese interpretation in many school settings but is most invaluable during student/parent/teacher conferences. Mai provides both direct interpretation and coordination with other interpreters. The recognition letter submitted by the community said: “Mai works beyond the scope of her duties with AISD and does home visits after working hours to ensure access to information. She is tireless and eagerly works with other agencies to help develop materials in Burmese for her community. She truly is an inspiration and a joy to work with.”
