St. Julie said we should teach our students what they need to know for life. Refugees and immigrants in our country want and need to become citizens. Since I have been trained to do this work and have had a lot of experience in it, I take it as a great gift that I can offer myself as a tutor at the Notre Dame Educational Bridge Center. It is my great pleasure to tutor those interested in preparing for the Naturalization test and interview. I learn from my students as well, as they learn from me. I feel honored to serve this way.

For me to work in the Notre Dame Bridge Program with students seeking citizenship in the USA is inspiring. I witness their sincerity, sticktuitiveness and struggle to be a part of our democracy. I hear their belief that ‘God has BLESSED AMERICA!’ so to be a part of our democracy is a privilege and honor for them. I learn that their life experiences make me REFLECT ON and APPRECIATE what I have ALWAYS experienced…’LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.’ That is AWE-SOME!

Having worked in education for 60+ years it is such a pleasure to work with such eager-to-learn students at the Notre Dame Educational Bridge Program. I feel that I am honored to have a chance to help these beautiful people as they study to become American citizens.

I have been a tutor at Notre Dame Educational Bridge Center for about 5 years. During this time, I have had the opportunity to work individually with over 30 students from different countries—individuals eager to become United States Citizens.

One of my reasons for volunteering in this program is the desire to assist my students as they work through the multiple steps required for becoming U.S. citizens. I am touched by their stories of life in their countries of origin, the sacrifices they are currently making as they juggle work, family and other obligations, and the enthusiasm with which they speak of their desire for citizenship. Overall, their sacrifices to provide a better life for their children and their families are both admirable and touching. I am very happy to assist in this important aspect of the work of the Notre Dame Educational Bridge Center.
