What Our Clients Say

Thank you to the people who constitute the WCSD. I enjoy coming to class to learn to read. Learning from special people have changed my life.Shelia Jhones,
I really want to improve my reading so I can help my kids. I couldn’t help my oldest, but it isn’t too late to help my youngest. Thanks to all of you for making all of this possible. Lois Martin,
Now I’m at WCSD. I can read much better and out loud. Sometimes I think about going back to my grade school teacher and showing her that I can be up in front of the class and read out loud. I am twenty-seven and I feel good about myself.Richard Williams,
