The following story was written by Sandy Harte, from New Waterford, Nova Scotia. Sandy is enrolled in literacy Classes in the New Waterford Day Class, which is a member of the Cape Breton Literacy Network.
In March of 2002 I decided to go back to school and I joined the New Waterford Day Class run by the Cape Breton Literacy Network. I came back to school because I want to learn to read and write. I would like to be able to help my children and I would someday like to have a good job. This is a big step for me. I want to get my driver's license so this is a good place to start.
