“My teachers and staff members are a team and together we guide the program through its challenges, growth and successes. Changing the lives of adult learners in our community is a remarkable experience that I am honored to be part of. It is wonderful to partner with other community-based organizations and their great leaders. Collaborating together and being part of the change that is needed for the adults that we serve is so valued!”
