Take a look at some of our current and previous students, and what they have to say about our programs!



“For me Blue Hills is a treasure and I want to share that treasure with everybody. I feel so happy to learn. Blue Hills has given me the confidence to speak with others and help the community. They have helped me to be employed, too.”

“Now I have a voice.”

-Missleia Soares

Missleia is from Brazil and has lived in the United States since 2003. As a wife, mother, student, and community advocate, her life is very busy.

MIssleia is a deeply committed person. She is committed to her family, her community, and to improving herself in the pursuit of helping others. Missleia knew that if she wanted to meet her commitments, she needed to learn English. When she learned about Blue Hills Adult Education from other Brazilians in her community, she enrolled as a student.

As she has worked toward improving her English at Blue Hills, Missleia has become very involved in her community. She has worked hard as a volunteer for Self Help, Inc. and for the town of Stoughton, and her efforts have not gone unnoticed. Self Help, Inc. recently selected her as their Stoughton representative, allowing her to her to explain to area families how Self Help programs work, and the town of Stoughton has hired her as a paid interpreter for the town. As a town interpreter, she works in the schools, the library, and at special town events, communicating information to Stoughton’s Brazilian population.

Missleia is an inspiration to all of us, and Blue Hills is proud to be a part of her continued success.

We have all come from our countries to the United States in order to reach our dreams. Personal or family dreams, whether to earn more money, or to seek more knowledge and learning, to provide a good school for the children or even to open their own business.

No matter what the reason we came, what matters is that we have two big challenges: the First one is to know about the American culture and the second one to learn the language. We find here at Blue Hills the opportunity to reach these challenges more efficiently, more didactically and professionally. The evolution is noticed day by day, in every detail. Whether at home trying talk with the family or watching TV and listening to the radio. When we are going out for a meal or to buy something in a store. When we need to say “good morning or Bye Bye” to the neighborhood.

In our jobs, when we want to say something more to our customers or make small talk with co-worker or even make a letter in Google Docs to ask your boss for a raise. In PTO’s at the children’s school… (This is really really difficult, wow )

“Do you know another one that “was” very difficult to do?” Go to the Hospital without the help of interpreter.. wow. It does not matter who and where.. but we need all this. I had a great experience weeks ago. Two of my old clients gave me a great feedback: “They said I had improved my English very fast and that I was doing very well.” I was very happy when I heard this .. I even gave them a good discount.

I made sure they knew that behind all this, there are you: Ellen, Beth, Cindy, Tammy, Jackie.

On behalf of the whole class, we would like to thank the Blue Hills family for their special thanks.



I’m Brygida, I’m in level one almost level two. Thank you for these English classes.

Thank you everyone for coming.We all come here to learn English and we appreciate the opportunity.

We decided to live and work in U.S. so knowing English is a must. By speaking English we feel more confident and comfortable. For example for me personally I used to go to the restaurant and was not able to order food. I felt nervous. Now I feel that i can do it and get better every day.

Thank you to all our teachers for your hard work, thank you to Tammy for help with computers.Special thanks to Ellen our director for your dedication for our school.
