Literacy Pro gram the biggest challenge is get ting her students to believe they can accomplish their goals The toughest thing for me to do is to convince them that they can earn their Erlanson said But 1 am real good at encouraging them If you can convince some one to do something they will do Erlanson is one of two volunteer tutors who helps 26 students who are either in GED or ESL classes held at the Bulverde Public Library The GED classes are held on Tues day nights at 6 while the ESL classes are held on Wednesdays Erlanson a senior administrative clerk for the Institute of Texan Cul tures gives her free time to the stu dents each Tuesday night after she comes in from work But Erlanson loves being around the students so much that she does not mind help ing the students after a hard days work It is very hard to work and give up your time at the same Erlanson said But 1 believe this a real worthwhile thing for me to do because the rewards are tremen dous It makes you feel good when the students accomplish something because you had a part in The adult literacy program in Bulverde is funded by the County Adult Literacy Council based in Schertz and is supported by the Comal Independent School Dis trict The literacy program in Bul verde has been in existence for five years The ESL classes are taught under the direction of Frances Allbright who Erlanson calls a wonderful Erlanson said in her GED classes she starts her students from the very beginning whether vhe subjects are in math writing reading math sci ence or social studies The GED classes are designed to prepare the students to take and pass their GED tests which tests students in five different subject areas literature and arts science or social studies reading writing and math Most of the students who walk into her classes are people who dropped out of school and can read from a fifth grade to tenth grade level Erlanson said All of these students are bright Erlanson said When they first come in most of these students do not have a good feeling about school because they dropped out of it They feel they have forgotten everything But once they start get ting into it everything starts coming back to During her service as a tutor Erlanson said she has seen many remarkable stories There was one student who proved that it was never too late to accomplish their Erlanson said She was 65 when she earned her GED and she was able to grad uate with her daughter I thought that moment was very neat Then there was another student who could not read or write but held a job for a long time because he had such good memorization skills This shows the amazing survival skills these people have when they need If anyone is interested in becom ing a tutor or needs help in literacy skills Erlanson can be contacted
