Resuming My Future Education

June 9, 2017


I had stopped attending the Hayward Library Literacy – Plus Learners Program for months because I had a major knee replacement surgery last May.  My recovery has been a long process.  I had a lot of therapy through the rehabilitation program of the hospital.  I am still experiencing pain every now and then, however I’m dealing with the pain in a positive way.


I wanted to resume my studies so I made contact with my tutor Alma to meet at the library.  Alma is an excellent tutor.  She has been very patient with me.  I have learned my consonants and vowels and I am learning the different types of syllables.  This helps me to break down the syllables from a word.


I am starting to enjoy reading and I find it to be a fun activity.  My comprehension when I read now is a lot better than before I joined the Literacy Plus program.  I have borrowed reading materials from the public library and I have thoroughly enjoyed them especially the “Chicken Soup for the Soul”.  I also read some classic stories written by Shakespeare.  They were only synopsis of the story but I found it to be very informative.


I am thankful for the encouragements I have received from the library staff especially my tutor.  I must admit I’m not smarter than a fifth grader but with the Literacy-Plus Program, I am determined that I’ll get to be a better student and be more educated.  I hope that this will help me find a job in the future.
