Woman sees need in teaching parents English

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - After volunteering at a Region 8 school, a Jonesboro woman saw there was a need in Region 8 for parents to learn English.

Mona Fielder used to volunteer at the Microsociety Magnet School in Jonesboro. Fielder said when she says, "need", she means that bilingual kids need to be able to communicate effectively with their parents.

The classes are being held at the Hispanic Center in Jonesboro. They began on January 22 and Fielder said so far her class is a success.

"We started our class and it was great," said Fielder. "The participants were excited and they thought they learned so fast they wanted me to go faster."

The classes are held every Wednesday at 10 a.m. Fielder said there is a small fee for the class.

For any questions, you can call the Hispanic Center at (870)931-1884.
