Natalie Lichtenstein had never been a teacher.  But she recognized that some of her Coleman House neighbors who had immigrated to this country were interested in improving their English skills.  She decided to set up a conversational English class, publicize it throughout the building, and see if there was any interest.  Very quickly, 11 people joined the weekly group, and the conversation began!  Everyone involved — instructor and students — is having a great time.  The classes are animated and fun.  The participants recently brought flowers to class to acknowledge their instructor’s 83rd birthday.  The card read: to a great teacher, with respect and love.  Natalie was deeply moved.  “This is clearly one of the best things I have ever done in my life!”
