Review for Project Adult Literacy AKA Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Decades ago, I left graduate school convinced that I could not teach. Newport-Mesa Proliteracy showed me that I could still make a difference. I could use my teaching skills to help people become literate, and change their lives in the process. The program matched me with a very hard case indeed: a man in his sixties who had been illiterate all his life. We started with the alphabet. I have had amazing support from Cherall Weiss, the program coordinator, who has helped me find working strategies to help this man. She has my back, whatever the situation. Unless disaster strikes, I plan to work with NMPL for the rest of my life.
