MLP Student's Success!

feature image

Congratulations to MLP student Margaret A.! She became a U.S. citizen in September! Margaret has been in the MLP program since 2010, in that time, she has improved her skills in reading, writing and speaking English. In addition to improving her English, she obtained a library card and began using many of the services offered at the library. She also began using the computer and the internet in English. As soon as she became a citizen she registered to vote for the first time. Margaret has also improved her ability to converse with doctors and healthcare professionals, which is important for her own health, but also for those she cares for in her job as a home health care aide. Many thanks are owed to Margaret's volunteer literacy tutor, Julie Mattei. Julie has been a volunteer literacy tutor with MLP since 2006, in that time, she's tutored 9 students. Julie's speciality is ESL students.
