Socorro Gomez-Potter, the principal of Providence's Reservoir Avenue Elementary School and a participant in the first of the Kingdom groups, was part of the first group of 12.She says that the hope is that every couple of months there will be enough new people wanting to join the group -- either from the congregation or from the outside -- that the number of groups and participants would triple so that by the end of a year the numbers would be very large indeed.
"My personal hope is that we will reach out to people who are not in any church right now in the Providence community," she says.

Meanwhile, Socorro Gomez-Potter, a native of Mexico and the principal of Alfred A. Lima Sr. Elementary School here, is gradually phasing out the school's transitional-bilingual-education track and replacing it with a two-way bilingual education program for all students.
Transitional bilingual education is "very difficult to carry out, given that our teachers are Spanish- dominant and some of them are limited-English-proficient themselves," Gomez- Potter says."Can you see the difficulty of developing English?"
Gomez-Potter, the principal at Lima Elementary School, acknowledges that not everyone in the city sees it that way.Some people still look back with nostalgia to when the communities around the schools were less poor and diverse, she says.
"I hear the comments consistently from teachers and parents: 'I remember, I remember, I remember.' And they're not remembering back 30 years ago.They're remembering back 15 years ago," Gomez-Potter says.
To them, the demographic changes automatically go hand in hand with lower academic achievement, she observes.
"But they're not believing all children can learn," the principal adds."We need to change with the community."
