Meredith is our volunteer of the month for December 2018!
•
Meredith has been teaching Intermediate-level classes since the first days of Centro in 2001 and has logged over 500 volunteer hours!
•
Meredith’s time and experiences living in foreign countries and her work developing curriculum and teaching teachers at the Resource Center of the Americas motivated her to teach in retirement; she “wanted to work directly with people who were immigrants”. Upon reflecting on her nearly 20 years of volunteering at Centro, Meredith’s favorite part of teaching was clear: “Oh, it’s connecting with the students.”
•
In addition to teaching, Meredith has developed a series of Voter Education lessons for ELL students and new U.S. citizens, which has been promoted by the Minnesota Literacy Council. When she is not teaching Beginner 2 on Wednesdays, Meredith enjoys making twig furniture, vegetable gardening, reading, and spending time with her grandchildren (her favorite hobby😊).
•
Thank you for sharing your expertise and kindheartedness with the Centro community! You are a gift, Meredith!
Not too late for our December student of the month!
•
Blanca Cuzco is our student of the month for December 2018! Blanca has been taking English classes at Centro since June of 2017 and has logged over 120 hours!
•
Blanca visits her nephew, Juan Cuzco, about 3 times a year and faithfully attends English classes at Centro when she is here. In Ecuador, Blanca has 4 children and 17 grandchildren. She lives with her youngest son and cares for her family and works on their family farm.
•
When in Minneapolis, Blanca enjoys reading, cooking for the family, and exploring the nature Minnesota has to offer. She attended the Super Bowl festivities in February, traveled to Washington D.C. to fight for immigrant rights and spends time volunteering at Holy Rosary.
•
Blanca is learning English so she is able to communicate with employees when running errands and to better integrate into the Minneapolis community. When asked about her favorite part of Minnesota, she said she enjoyed the beauty in the summer, but was also quick to point out how wonderful the snow is.
•
Blanca is a joy to have as a student at Centro and we feel lucky that she visits us a few times a year!
Merry Christmas 🎄 Feliz Navidad
As we approach our chilliest day yet tomorrow, we want to thank St. Bart’s of Wayzata for their generous donation of coats! Most of our students walk or take public transportation to our programming, so a warm coat is a necessity. Thanks for keeping our community warm!

¡A medida que nos acercamos el día mas frío de este invierno, estamos agradecidos a la iglesia de St. Bart’s en Wayzata por la donación de abrigos! La mayoría de nuestros estudiantes caminan a nuestros programas, entonces una abrigo cálido es una necesidad. ¡Gracias por cuidar a nuestra comunidad!

This fall we were thrilled to begin a new financial literacy partnership, a collaboration with the University of MN Extension and the Center for Community-Engaged Learning. Thank you to University of Minnesota students, Jennifer & Roda, for sharing your knowledge of budgeting with our Intermediate ELL students!

It’s not too late to celebrate Halloween AND our October student of the month, Maria (left)!
•
Maria is our student of the month for October 2018! Maria has logged over 400 hours since starting classes with us in March of 2017!
•
Maria is from Toluca, Mexico and after arriving to the States in 2002, she came directly to Minneapolis. Maria has 5 children and 5 grandchildren and has worked in the cleaning industry both in Mexico and in Minneapolis. She came here “looking for a better future for my children.”
•
When she is not taking English classes, she enjoys spending time with her grandkids, talking with friends and working. When asked about Minnesota, she said “I love the snow!” She is taking classes at Centro to help with future work opportunities.
•
Maria has gotten involved with Centro not only through our English classes, but her children and grandchildren attend our summer programming. Maria says the teachers here are “really nice and explain things well.”
•
We are grateful to have Maria as a part of our community and are encouraged by her English progress! Thank you, Maria, for your positive attitude and joy!
