Alejandra Muñoz Contreras kept registration running smoothly for 85 new students
New semester,
new students

With the beginning of a new semester comes new students registering for classes. Across just three days last month,  85 brand new students sat down one-on-one with Literacy Network staff and registered to be a part of a variety of literacy programs.
You are making this growth possible!  Without your support, there is no way we would be able to support the growing demand for literacy education in our community. Alejandra,  pictured here, started her own journey with Literacy Network at class registration only a few years ago. Today, she helps run class registration as Literacy Network's Student Services & Office Coordinator. Alejandra's success is thanks to your support - thank you!
"I need my vote": Georgina's Story

On a Wednesday morning at Literacy Network, Georgina reads aloud in English, then stands up to write on the board while the 12 other students in her citizenship class cheer her on. ("Georgina! Georgina!")

"I like my class because I am so nervous, but I feel good when we go to the front," she says. "I try, and I think it's good for us."

Georgina moved to Madison from Hidalgo, Mexico 23 years ago. She recently retired after working as a housekeeper and at Oscar Mayer. Now that she's retired, she has time to take classes and study for her American citizenship test.

Georgina's classmates come from five different continents, but they are all working toward their goal of citizenship by improving their English literacy skills and studying United States geography, civics, and other topics that will help them pass their exams.  Georgina is resolute. "I need my residence," she says. "I need my vote."
