(English as a Second Language @Temple Shalom Dallas)
Recently, LIFT (Literacy Instruction for Texas) determined it would run its ESL classes only at its downtown headquarters. This resulted in the closure of several satellite ESL centers. Our team has determined that, starting this fall, Temple Shalom teachers of ESL classes will teach students in conjunction with a network of area churches in our community, all working in coalition with the Richardson Adult Literacy Center – serving the RISD area. These churches, and now Temple Shalom, collaborate within a group, meeting regularly and sharing insights and best practices. Our teachers may also continue teaching at the Refugee Services of Texas (RST) later in the fall.
We hope you are as excited as we are to continue our journey serving adult learners. If you are interested in learning more, or in becoming a substitute, assistant or teacher, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our love for LIFT ‘s mission continues (link is https://lift-texas.org/get-involved/volunteer/), however, and they could still use volunteers at their offices for their GED, Adult Literacy and other programs. In addition, their Toast to Literacy event is coming up in September. Details can be found here. http://toasttoliteracy.org/
