This story was written by Kelly McDonald, from Barrie, Ontario. In her spare time, Kelly likes to do candle-making and to take long walks. She often takes walks with her four year-old stepson. He is the reason that Kelly enrolled in literacy classes.
My first day at school, I was scared to go. When I got to the school I got lost going to the room. When I got to the room I met some people and they were so nice to me, caring and helpful. I have come ever since my first day and they asked me to help by talking to new tutors and tell them about me and how I am making out with school. I feel coming here made my life so much better and I see the improvement in my life so if you need help come to the Barrie Literacy Council and you will see the improvement in your life!
