Sandra Garcon deserves my appreciation for all she did to help us learn our native language. I’ve learned a lot that will benefit my family and myself as well as an organization I’m currently engaged in with children. I also want to acknowledge the DOJ to facilitate this great program which gives us an opportunity to vent. Renold Mothe (father of five) also felt the same. Renold Mothe said his children are happier because of the coordination between the parents and their children.
