When I moved to the USA in 1999 I did not speak any English. At first I felt very frustrated. I started to work most of the time with two part time jobs for Eagle County School District as a cook Monday-Friday mornings, custodian in the afternoon, and cleaning houses and offices at nights and weekends.
As full time mom and housewife with three jobs I did not have enough time for myself. Time passed until my older son Gerardo invited me to take some classes. I started my education at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards getting my GED Certificate in 2004. Then I took some English classes. It was wonderful for me to be a student because I knew that it’s never is late to learn.
I am still learning. In 2015 I got a Psychology/Social Work Certificate, and in January 2017 I’ll start with more classes to get my Colorado Social Work license.
Colorado Mountain College is a great opportunity for all people with a desire to learn. I love all the time spent at the college for all the opportunities offered and for the assistance I received from teachers, counselors, and the whole staff. I am grateful to my husband for his support, thankful to my children for their help and patience. Special gratitude to all my English teachers at CMC for their time and all their counsel on my English learning.
