After living in the U.S. for more than 15 years, Lulu knew she needed to improve her English reading and writing skills in order to get a better job. She also wanted to be able to read to her children, help them with homework, and feel more confident in speaking with their teachers.
Lulu began working with her tutor, John, at Wisconsin Literacy group Fond du Lac Literacy Services in 2013. Since then Lulu has gotten a job as a teacher’s aide. She feels more confident when communicating with others and is well liked by the students and staff. It’s one more example of how literacy supports families and allows people to move up the economic ladder.
