The Minnesota State Representative for New Brighton, Saint Anthony and our own Columbia Heights, joined the level 2 class at Columbia Heights. Joseph Foss, who has been teaching with Metro North since 2009, invited representative Sandra Feist to join his online class so Metro North students could learn more about how our state government works.
Ms. Feist was a perfect guest for our classes. Not only was she able to describe how our state government works, how bills are passed, how our taxes are spent and what it is like to run for office; but Ms. Feist is also an immigration lawyer. She answered the learner’s questions about the immigration process and the resources that are available to help students apply for citizenship.
We are grateful to have Representative Feist join our class. The more our leaders experience how adults learn, the benefits of ABE programs and the services that really help, the stronger our programs become. Thank you, Joseph, and all the students in level 2 for engaging Representative Feist to attend your class and thank you Representative Feist for sharing your time and expertise.
