This Is Who We Teach: Hala

Hala Elnoby Hala began taking classes with LCNV through the Family Learning Program this past winter at our Herndon Fortnightly Library site. In class, it was easy to see that Hala wants to succeed in all that she does; her main aspiration is to be the best mom to her four boys. She not only would like to communicate effectively with everyone around, she also wants to understand others, adding that she would especially like to know when her boys are poking fun at her. She hopes to achieve all her goals one day, including becoming an internationally-known chef, owning her own restaurant and home, as well as being able to support her children throughout life. In June, her Annual Meeting contest essay about her hopes and dreams for the future, won first place in the classroom student category. She was able to graduate from class, and hopes to attend more advanced English classes to reach her goals.  With her hard work, patience, and dedication in class and life, she is a true success!
