My latest endeavor

Literacy is something I have always taken for granted. I love to read – I taught myself when I was four years old.  My husband loves to read.  I read to our babies and now that they are older all three of them love to read on their own.  One of our favorite places to go is the bookstore and we rarely come home empty handed.  We love books!!!

Not everyone looks upon reading as we do.  In our county there are 17,000 illiterate adults.  The county has a literacy program designed to help reduce that number.  They have a sign near my college campus, asking for volunteers.  Guess what I did this summer?  Yup, I finally attended an orientation session and signed up for tutoring training.

Two weeks or so ago, I received a shiny certificate proclaiming that I finished my training and I was assigned a client.  I met him today, and we will begin working together on Monday.

I’m shaking in my boots.  I hope I can help him.

    Fantastic, Itsy! He is a very lucky person to have you as an instructor. You’ll be amazing (you are never anything less) and he will be reading in no time at all. So proud of you!

    What they all said. I’d love to have you teach me to read, except I already can. Perhaps you could teach me something else.

    Well done for making time to volunteer for this fantastic scheme. You will make more difference to someone than you can possibly imagine.
