Tatiana, an ESL student with READ Lakeland, Inc. was recently honored by the Florida Literacy Coalition (FLC) for an essay she wrote for the FLC’s annual essay contest. The essay, “My Two Countries”, was published in the annual Florida Literacy Coalition’s book of essays, Hear Me. Tatiana and her tutor, Dr. Irma Dietert, were invited to attend the annual Florida Literacy Coalition conference held in Orlando Florida April 29, 2015 at the Omni Rosen Hotel on International Drive. The conference offered educational workshops, information on literacy, a luncheon, and an opportunity for Tatiana to read her essay to attendees. READ Lakeland is proud of Tatiana and her accomplishments during the one and a half years she has lived in the United States. We thank Irma for volunteering her time tutoring Tatiana. She received a copy of the book and sent a copy of her essay to her Father in Columbia.
