A Source of Inspiration…featuring Janned Serrano, Bigelow Tea, Fairfield CT
For over 18 years Caroline House has successfully taught
immigrant women English (ESL). Caroline House also provides a
free preschool, after-school and summer tutoring to elementary and
middle school children, citizenship classes, and life skills
Caroline House has recently instituted a Sources of Inspiration
Board. These women will serve as a resource for Caroline House
students (and all of us!) for inspirational stories to give hope
for the future. We are honored to have Janned Serrano as our first
Sources of Inspiration Board member. She is Executive
Assistant to Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea, and Community
Janned Serrano's advice to Caroline House Graduates:
- Surround yourself with English-speaking people.
- Speak English everywhere, even if it is not perfect.
- Don't be afraid to say "what does that mean?"
- Read books written in English.
- Take a risk. If someone asks you if you want to do something,
say yes, even if you don't know how.
