“One of the many things I love about my job is that I get to work with immigrants, and help them navigate the complexities of living in the US. My background as a social worker and ESL teacher are useful in my role as a Transition Specialist. I continue to learn and grow as I explore possibilities with ESL students. It is rewarding to see them become more confident as they achieve their goals, which range from helping their children with their homework, to attending community college, getting a better job, and integrating into the community.”
