Hi, I'm Cait. I am the CTEP AmeriCorps member and my job is to help students learn more about computers.
Hello all, I'm Kara. I'm the ELL/GED Program Manager. I love this time of year. I love fall because the colors are beautiful, and the air is cool and crisp. I also enjoy making homemade applesauce and toasting pumpkin seeds!
My name is Danny. I am a retired business executive and have been retired for almost ten years.I enjoy volunteering at Neighborhood House and meeting students from all over the world.
Hi, all! My name is Kirsi, and I volunteer in Brenda's 11:30 am Friday class. It's been great fun!
I am Chip Burkitt. I teach one of the GED Math classes on Tuesdays. I absolutely love it. I have my own blog at OrderingChaos.
There are advantages and disadvantages to blogging or using Facebook. Blogs are open to all Internet users. Depending on settings, anyone can view; anyone can comment. Facebook requires a membership. Both will generally allow email notifications or newsreader access. For me, it's a toss-up. I use both.
Hi everybody! I'm Sarah. I teach in the evenings. Teaching at Neighborhood House is one of my favorite things to do! I really love to help people learn.Like our students, I have also lived and learned a new language in another country, in China and in Ukraine. I speak English (of course), Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Russian. I like to think that my language learning experience helps me to be a better teacher. I remember how much my head would hurt from so many new words! Sometimes my throat was sore from making new sounds. Even so, I learned many ways to say things in many languages. I hope my students can find many ways to be successful learning English!
Hi, I just thought I would add a sentence or two more about my background. I have also lived in another country and learned the language. I studied French and Italian and worked as a nanny in Sicily. I love the fact that I can communicate with some of the Somali elders in Italian here at Neighborhood House. I hope I can learn some words and phrases in my students' first languages too.
