Meet Elizabeth

Workforce Challenge

Elizabeth was new to Fort Collins, a recent immigrant from Cuba with limited command of the English language. Elizabeth had previously worked as a middle school teacher while living in Cuba and was looking for an internship that could help her get experience here and make connections that would help lead her back to education.

Workforce Solution

LCWC placed Elizabeth in a classroom assistant role with a child-care facility associated with the Poudre School District in the early part of 2016.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing her 16-week internship, Elizabeth was offered employment with the work site. Recently, Elizabeth said the position has helped her gain current teaching experience and is hopeful that it will also help her make connections to move from an early childhood teaching experience into a position in the upper grades.
