New Learner Mentors at the City of Tavares Public Library!

Lake County Library System Adult Literacy Program
Erika Greene

We are very excited to welcome 2 new Learner Mentors to the program!  We know how hard learners work with their tutors to improve their English language skills and sometimes it is difficult.  The learner mentors are available to answer questions, offer support, make changes, and anything else that will help the adult learners achieve their literacy goals. We hope that this will make the learners experience in the Lake County Library System Adult Literacy Program a better one! We are pleased to welcome Angela Rojas and Amparo Tejada as the new Tavares Learner Mentors. 

My name is Angela Rojas.  I’m from Colombia and moved here with my two teen sons and my husband.  In Colombia I worked as a LabTechnician and here I’m working with Orange County School System.  I love working with people and helping others so after taking my English Class in Lake County Library System Adult Literacy Program I decided to encourage others to benefit from this wonderful program.

I’m Amparo Tejada from the Dominican Republic.  I have lived in the United States since 1975.  I lived in New York  15  years and have been living here in Florida for 17  years.  I bought a house in Astatula and I’m living with my husband and my adorable teen daughter.  I worked at a day care center in Minneola.  I’m an active learner of the Program and love it and think that more people should benefit of such a Program so I sign as a learner mentor to help the learners that are already in the Program and to orient others to join the program.

We are thrilled to include them in the Learner Mentor program. They are already reaching out to learners enrolled in the Tavares literacy program and getting great feedback.

Welcome Aboard Angela and Amparo!
