This week, we have a poem from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The author, Patti B., is enrolled in literacy classes at Dartmouth Learning Network (DLN), a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to improving literacy levels in the community. It offers training for adults in language, mathematics, computers and life skills.
I like coming to Dartmouth Learning Network
because the teacher makes you feel
that you are so smart.
It helps you with your confidence.
It’s nice to learn and feel
like you are making progress.
You learn that it is never too late to learn.
It’s very good to use your brain
and to be with other people.
