DARIEN – The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, School on Wheels is spreading joy through their new adult literacy programming, School on Wheels, which teaches adults english and other subjects around DuPage County and western Cook County, Patch.com reports. According to Patch,
"Deeper voices are now heard reading and spelling in the classrooms of Lace Elementary School in Darien since Tutors on Wheels, a free adult literacy program sponsored by the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, began bringing in dozens of English literacy volunteers on Monday evenings to tutor adult learners --most of them parents of school-aged children. Tutors on Wheels, a program of School and Tutors on Wheels, provides one-on-one adult tutoring at schools, libraries, and churches in Du Page County. School on Wheels also has sites in Du Page County and serves parts of western Cook County.
“It’s wonderful that School and Tutors on Wheels is giving this opportunity so close to home to the parents of our school children who want to improve their English skills,” says Irma Maciel, a former School and Tutors on Wheels student who now works as a teaching assistant at Eisenhower Jr. High School and is completing a master’s degree in education."
