This morning we at the Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center welcomed our newest ESL teacher, Dr. Magdalena (Maggie) Jones of Mercedes. She will begin teaching ESL classes at one of our 16 class sites, hosted by the Leadership Empowerment Group of Mercedes, TX. Thank you Maggie for stepping up!
Also a word of thanks to all of the organizations who host (for free!) ESL and GED classes in the Valley. This partnership helps to keep the costs very low for the students, and for the Literacy Center as well.
ESL and GED classes begin this coming Tuesday, September 4 for the fall semester. Much work goes into providing low-cost adult education, and my prayer is for those who are enrolled to realize their potential, and know that they can do something about their own illiteracy and poverty. They are valuable and much loved by the staff of the Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center. I’m grateful to be a part of this ministry.
