Lights, Camera, Action!

On Saturday, the ESL to Go team met at Edmondson Manor Apartment complex--a site where we're hoping to bring the mobile classroom. News Channel 4 had contacted us about wanting to run a story on our concept, ultimately hoping to bring awareness to our cause.

News Channel 4 wanted to show their viewers the type of students who would benefit from our program, so we decided to go into the home of Ching Nuam, an elderly Burmese woman who opens her apartment to a weekly English class led by a volunteer teacher. Our excited group of Burmese mothers, along with their children, were camera ready.

Ching Nuam, far right, second row, sits with her granddaughters and fellow classmate.

Ashley Ekers, ESL to Go's Curriculum Coordinator, led an impromptu class for the camera.

We love how the piece turned out and are hoping that it will bring attention to our fundraising campaign.
Watch it here. What do you think?
