Twillia Liles, MLS
Twillia graduated from SHSU with a Bachelor's Degree in English (BA) along with a Teaching Certificate and then went on to earn her Master's Degree in Library Science (MLS).
Twillia was trained as an LVA tutor in 1991, and as a Laubach Literacy Advance tutor a couple of years later. She loves being able to combine the two philosophies of adult literacy training in order to provide the instruction her learners need. At this time she is tutoring one-to-one with a high-level ABE learner.
She began volunteering with LVA in 1991 because she could not imagine not being able to read -- anything and everything. She is so in awe of adult literacy learners for their ability to be successful in life while living with the handicap of not being able to read, write, or speak English. It humbles her to assist in a learner's journey to literacy, celebrating with them each benchmark goal along the way.
