    Hassan Alamer is one of the volunteers for the Adult Litera-cy program at the CPC. Hassan was born and raised in Alhasa, Saudi Arabia. In 2006 he made the journey to the United States to study engineering. He and his wife recently moved to Tucson from Phoenix. Hassan currently is working as an Electrical Engineer at a utility co-op down in Benson. Hassan got involved with the Adult Literacy program back in January of this year. His main inspiration for getting involved with the CPC was be-cause of his strong belief for social justice and equal opportunity for all. Has- san says, “I have had a lot of privileges that have put me ahead of the game in life, and I feel obligated to help others who have not had the same opportunities I’ve had”. Hassan feels that the most rewarding part of working with the head start parents is the positive impact you can have on a whole family. For Hassan there is nothing more rewarding than having an impact such as that. Some advice that Hassan gives to prospective volunteers and current volun- teers would be to do anything you can. Hassan states that, “There is always a privilege you enjoy and maybe unaware of how you can use it to make a difference in other’s lives”.   eatured Story  November 2014 What’s ooking   Sweet Potato Casserole Ingredients 4 1/2 pounds sweet pota-toes 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup milk 1/2 cup butter, softened 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cups cornflakes cereal, crushed 1/4 cup chopped pecans 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon butter, melted 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows Preparation Bake sweet potatoes at 400° for about 1 hour or until tender.

An instructor should be able to determine the appropriate level of difficulty that a particular student can handle. Be creative when presenting lessons. Although Adult Literacy lessons should be formal and systematized, an instructor could still use videos, music and other forms of media related to the lessons. There are various barriers involved when it come to Adult Literacy. Probably the most difficult barrier to handle is the language barrier, which is why many instructors still struggle to correct the pronunciation of some of the English words, the grammatical errors, etc. However, it is still the responsibility of the instructor to make an effort to break these barriers and create a good learning environment. By and large, still, being an ESL teacher is not easy because there are so many things to consider and there are just so many things that he/she needs to learn. Teaching Tips   Originally Rosalinda bought a self  - learning course for English, but found it dicult due to all of the distracons at home, so she then began researching English classes she could aend. Desperately searching for an English class, she nally found the Child - Parent Cen-ters when her son enrolled in the Head Start program. When Rosalinda rst started taking English classes through the CPC she thought she was too old and doubted that she would be able to learn anything. Luckily though Rosalinda began to get the hang of it saying, “The pronunciaon is very dicult, but I thank God I am learn-ing some English”. Rosalinda says her English had greatly improved and has learned a lot. She gives a lot of credit to the teacher, who Rosalinda claims to be very strict, but is very happy with. Rosalinda states , “He is very strict, but if he wasn’t so strict I would not do the homework. Our teacher is giving his me to us so that we can learn, when he could be doing oth-er things such as spending me with his family, so I movate myself more to study English”. “This country is the land of opportunies for my children. Despite the fact we do not know English very well, they will have a beer life. We are very happy but I want to be able to communicate with others beer” Rosalinda says. Student Spotlight Rosalinda Magallanes came to Tuc-son in 1997 from Nayarit, Mexico as a newlywed in hopes to nd work. Her dreams were to save enough money and nished building a house Rosalinda and her husband had start-ed. She luckily was able to nd a job quickly, but her plans changed and made Tucson her permanent home when her rst child was born in Tucson followed shortly by her second. Rosalinda and her husband decided that staying in the United States was the best thing to do for their children. Rosalina explains how her children do not understand many words in Spanish, so it becomes dicult for her to communi-cate with the kids. Learning English has become Rosalinda’s main priority because it is dicult understand her children’s teachers at conferences, and has even become embarrassed to aend the conferences because she doesn’t understand English well enough. She nds it very important to learn English so that she is able to communicate with everyone and be able to par-cipate in community acvies. When going out Rosalinda would become very embarrassed if someone would come up to her and ask a queson, most of the me she would just walk away because she couldn’t communi-cate with them. Her husband is able to speak a lile English but mainly about work. Rosalinda’s children would ask her when she was going to learn English.
