Welcome To My World: Another Year Done
Linda Martin, Director
As I write this, we are one month from our Recognition Ceremony. Year 18 is soon to be in the books. We had 17 children attending this year and 2 Practitioner 1 Scholars and 1 Practitioner 2 Scholar. We will be honoring the Scholars and eight children who have completed their time at the Center and will be moving to independent learning. We will also recognize the nine children who plan to return in the fall for their second year with us…
Welcome To My World: October 2020
Linda Martin, Director
As I write this, we are at the end of Day One back at the Center tutoring children. We are thrilled to say that all has gone smoothly thus far. The children were given a run-through on the hand washing- changing into clear masks routine that is done after they have entered the Center with a completed Covid 19 form to which we add their current temperature.

I feel like I caught up with everyone else, and now I’m capable of attending a grammar and writing program that is intense. It is not easy, but I persevere. I would never have been able to attend my grammar and writing class, if it had not been for the Center, because I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with the amount of reading, and writing required…
