BOSTON (CNS) — In a fairly industrial-looking part of South Boston, four women gathered in a classroom at the Notre Dame Education Center.
It was time for their twice-per-week math lessons with AmeriCorps volunteer Nason Heywood, 29.
The students were reviewing addition and subtraction concepts, working through the sometimes complicated processes of carrying 10s and borrowing. Heywood posed problems at the white board.
