Sister Helen Jane Jaeb, SSND

Title: ESL Coordinator

Department: Community Services

What is a small town Minnesota girl doing in Amarillo, TX? I came to answer an invitation to begin an English as a Second Language program (ESL) through Catholic Charities of the Texas Panhandle. My name is Sister Helen Jane Jaeb, a School Sister of Notre Dame (SSND). On June 4, 2018, I began my ministry at CCTXP as Developer and coordinator of the ESL program. My responsibilities are to invite volunteers to be tutors, train the tutors, get materials for the students and tutors, register students, teach and support the tutors in their teaching, and, whatever else is needed. At this time we have three sites and hold classes four times a week, three time slots a day. I am available to work with other areas of the Panhandle to begin ESL Programs.

I love being a part of CCTXP and am grateful for the support of Jeff, the staff as well as those who are helping with classroom space, donations, and interest in helping our program grow.
