In the mornings we go to the park. We’ve started to walk for better health. I saw a man and he looks angry because somebody hit his blue car. We just keep walking and we ran to the limit of the path. It was a long, hot day but I feel grateful because my family has their health and good people exist like my teacher Jackie.
The classes help me a lot because now I understand more than before. Now I can speak with other people who don’t speak Spanish. My accomplished is I read to my little daughter. I hope for my future to have my GED diploma.
I was born in a small town in Guanaguato, Mexico. The name of this place is Cerrito de Agua Caliente. It was a very poor town, but I was very happy there. I got married when I was nineteen years old. My husband and I moved to Huntington Beach, CA which had a big impact on my life. I was so young and I missed my family. I cried and felt sad all the time. As time passed, I got pregnant three times. Every time I had a child, I suffered from depression. It was a very bad time, but thanks to this sickness I am a new person – stronger and more confident. I now have and know a lot of people who are part of this change, including my brother and sisters, God, my tutor and Amy. Now I have a job. I feel happy to help my husband. Even though I have had a difficult time, I am grateful that my kids were born in California, so they can have a better life with more careers.
Literacy is all about learner goals. One of Celia’s literacy goals is to be able to express herself in writing. She and her tutor are very pleased with her progress!
If you believe in your dreams, make sure you work for the dreams in your life. I don’t know what you are looking for in your search. Believe in yourself and you can make your life great. I like learning because the more you know you can appreciate what you have.
The literacy program has tutors and people who help too. I go to the Literacy Program because I need to learn more English, writing, reading, speaking and pronunciation and conversation with other people when I need anything.
In the future I will get GED Certificate and a job.
Thank you to the Literacy Program classes. I improved my writing, my reading and spelling. I feel more confident to talk in the English Language. My tutor is a wonderful person. I enjoy talking to her. She knows a lot. Thank you Lani to be at the literacy program. I hope to speak English fluently soon.
