The value of individual attention

Judith Yola

A few weeks ago we started working with seven-year-old Judith. We were concerned because she was about to enter first grade without having attended kindergarten. Judith was not even familiar with the letters of the alphabet. With classes as large as sixty children and no aides, public school teachers are often unable to give students the individual attention they need. Thankfully, Judith is advancing rapidly in the free tutoring classes we offer two evenings a week. She now forms her letters easily and is gaining confidence in her abilities. Thanks to Yolanda (pictured above) and our other dedicated tutors, these children have a better chance at doing well in school. We are grateful to our benefactors and sponsors who make our work possible.

  1. God bless you for your wonderful work Sister Maggie. My college students and I will be in Cuernavaca in March for Spring break. We’d like to offer our assistance for a few days, if you can use us.

    • Dear Araceli, Mil disculpas, I just found this comment on my blog that you were interested in helping us over spring break. I was traveling in March and I am only now getting caught up with my email. You can get in touch with me at hermana-maggie@hotmail.com. Perhaps we can work something out for the future. Thank you so much!
