Congratulations to Gina Poore, one of our very dedicated Adult Education students. Gina has been a Literacy Council student since 2007 and she has recently completed all twelve books in the Wilson series. This is a rare accomplishment indeed!
A few years ago, Gina’s CASAS test score showed that she was reading at the third grade level. This time around, her score reflects the hard work that Gina and her tutor, Day Ann Emory, have put in week after week. Gina is reading at the eleventh grade level. What amazing growth!
There is always more to learn and Gina and Day Ann are not done. They have decided to concentrate on advanced spelling and writing skills. These high level skills will make Gina a better candidate in a competitive job market. Once her children leave home, Gina may dive in to full-time work and she hopes to be prepared.
In the meantime, Gina will continue to read novels- something that she could not do before meeting Day Ann. Not long ago, she finished a mystery novel and now she has picked up a book by bestselling author, Nora Roberts. We hope she enjoys the read!
