Diversity Day [Gorham Adult Education]

On December 11th, four adult  English Language Learners from Gorham Adult Education participated in the Gorham Middle School's Diversity Day.  The group presented to two different groups of 20 students.  The adults share a bit about life in their native countries, and shared some of the reasons they came to the United States.  Especially interesting was their emphasis on the value of education.  According to one middle school teacher, the students rated this workshop as one of the best they saw that day.

The adult education students were from Sudan, Jamacia, Burundi and Latvia.
