“My son was so proud the first time I ordered a Combo Number 1 without his help. He no longer has to translate for me! This summer we read To Kill a Mockingbird. The words and characters immersed us in the American culture. I now have my GED diploma, another tool for success in the USA. I am a classroom volunteer helping others to learn English and a citizen of the United States.”
