English as a Second Language

The English as a Second Language (ESL) classes concluded on May 25th.  SJV would like to congratulate our 53 graduates and their families. 

It is always encouraging to see how these students, from all walks of life, work hard and strive incessantly to improve their lives by learning English. The camaraderie among the groups and the respect and affection towards their teachers is also remarkable.  As any of the ESL teachers would tell you, it is also a very gratifying and humbling experience for them. They often ’walk’ with their students up through the levels until their final graduation.

Did you know? Some of the benefits of ESL classes include an increase in community participation, improvement in family life, increased opportunities in education and employment, and ultimately, self-sufficiency.

We would also like to acknowledge our very talented and dedicated ESL Teachers, Substitute Teachers and ESL Advisory Team members who volunteered their time and talents this academic year for welcoming the stranger among us and making such a difference in their students’ lives!  

ESL is an opportunity to give newcomers the needed tools to prosper as residents in the United States.  Classes begin again on September 5th. If you would like to minister as a substitute teacher, please contact Glorivel at 281.497.4434. No experience is necessary, and you do not need to speak any language other than English.  Training will be provided. 

“For I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Mt 25:35)
