As new arrivals to the U.S., my ESL students' backgrounds and experiences are vastly different from most teenagers. Many have fled from their homeland (some traveling alone) after facing unimaginable circumstances. Their stories would bring tears to your eyes and break your heart. And yet, they enter my room every day with smiles! They are safe, they are free and they have hope for a better tomorrow! We have the opportunity to be a part of a new program in our district. Students participate in an intensive language class where they learn to listen and understand, speak, read and write in English. They also take career and technical enrichment courses that provides hands on experience to enhance their professional career choices. Many have set goals of obtaining a GED through our Adult Ed program, too! Education is the key to success and these students are working hard to achieve their American dreams!
