Visiting Garfield Elementary in Elgin, Illinois

I have walked on these steps at Garfield Elementary School many times. This is my first American school I attended back in 1st grade in Elgin, Illinois. The few English words I know were “hi” and “eat” on my first day of school. To be standing on these steps again and holding my first children’s book many years later is very rewarding. It was also a special moment to share with my daughters. Dreams do come true.
