In my mind this is what America is all about

Esther came to the United States in December of 2005. She is from Liberia, where women do not go to school. She became a student in the TASK Adult Education Program (AEP) in October of 2007. This is her first school. She is still learning how to read and write, but through the AEP writer's weekly workshop, she wrote the following essay with some help from her tutor, Lydia.

The Building on Escher Street

After you enter the front door, you will see sixteen tables in an orderly setting. I felt a feeling kindness and was welcomed by smiling faces of people. I felt so relieved and a feeling of joy, that people I have never seen before. And I was introduced to a smiling face of a lady called Mrs. Kelly. In my mind this is what America is all about. My first teacher was so good to me. She smiled for me every day. And I was so happy at that. God bless her and gave her long life. She is so happy all the time.

I get many services. I get food after classes. The food is good. I get a lot of clothes for myself and other people. I get schooling where I am learning to read and write English. I have nice tutors.
