I had my interview in January with the Vista County employer and once they decided that I was fit for the job, they put me through a two month background check that consisted of a background application which included references, job experience, family information, academic grades, and every possible little detail they wanted to know about me.

Still, throughout my ten hours with Lek, I could see huge improvements in her conversational English ability.

Unfortunately when Melissa left, the entirety of the volunteer staff stopped volunteering. It was up to the Fisher family and I, five unqualified people to lead the Kids Zone program every week.
