Tutor Jill Mischo and Deborah


My name is Deborah. I met Jill 4 years ago at the Lighthouse Shelter. I know it was Jill from her smile. We started with Book 1. I know my letters . The flash cards help me learn new words. We ended Book 1 and I earned my certificate. I showed it to everybody at Lighthouse and my family. They were all proud of me. So was I.

We have fun at our lessons. I love learning to read and write. I was proud to earn that Book 2 certificate. We have worked through more books and are reading lots of stories. I know more answers and I love cursive writing.

I can read signs at the museum and the zoo. I go to meetings at my apartment. I sing the songs at church. When the doctor gives me directions, Jill and I read them together. We both are learning how to be healthy. Thank God I can work with Jill and improve my reading and writing.

Never give up. You work hard and people will help you. God will help you. Thanks for the free books. Thanks for the certificates. I only have to pay for my school supplies.
