Learn more about an outstanding student: Aminata
 
Aminata Bilgo came to our Greensboro office in May 2010 looking to improve all aspects of her English. She is originally from Côte d'Ivoire, and speaks French and Dioula.
 
She is a founding member of our morning ESOL class, now taught by Candy Lemon. Aminata has been one of the most persistent learners, rarely missing a class in two years. In that time, she's attended over 300 hours of instruction. "She has also willingly helped other students with their studies even if it means holding herself back temporarily to see them get ahead," says Candy. On her most recent assessment, Aminata increased a full literacy level in reading. 
 
Recently, she helped Reading Connections by agreeing to be one of the actors in our soon to be released tutor training videos.  According to ESOL Coordinator Ben Michelson, "She jumped at the chance to be in our training video, not because she's a ham (she was really nervous the whole time), but because it was a way to give back to Reading Connections and to show us her appreciation."

In appreciation of a learner that exemplifies persistence, dedication, and cheerfulness, we recognize Aminata as our Student of the Month.
